Program Information and Philosophy

Program Philosophy
It is the philosophy of the baseball program that all co-curricular programs are truly extensions of the classroom. God, family, and academics are the first priority of all members of our program; baseball is next in line. Baseball is a game where discipline, hardwork, teamwork, ability to handle adversity, attitude, respect, and attention to detail can all be learned and practiced. These and other life skills will be carried forward throughout life and help with the future of all people. By learning and working on these skills we are hoping to help develop good friends, sons, brothers, etc. and good baseball players. Our players and coaches should realize just how lucky we are to have that time together to put away the cell phones, emails, and other distractions that we are surrounded with. Cherish that time to develop into better people and better baseball players. Click HERE to review the complete Eagle Baseball Philosophy Statement.
