#ExpectGreatness

Back in the day, Coach Ryan worked with a determined young pitcher named Clayton Crum. Coach Ryan helped Clayton reach his potential as a baseball player. Clayton went on to play at the Division 1 and professional levels.

Now, years later Coach Ryan  – and now Coach Crum – reunite to offer a TRUE developmental baseball program in North Houston Texas. Powered by Mizuno, their program is built on their combined years of experience (both playing and coaching ) as well as hard work, honor and a healthy respect for the game.

In addition, as an orginzation we take pride in the quality of our coaching staff.  Scroll down and take a look at our Head Coaches!
