Missouri Longhorns Baseball: Welcome

Team Missouri Baseball

 

We are excited to announce the formation of Team Missouri Baseball, created by the merger of the Meramec Valley Knights, Missouri Longhorns, Rawlings Diamond Devils, Rawlings Titans and SLABA Travelers. This premier youth baseball club is led by a group of men who are passionate about teaching the game of baseball, and share

common values relative to the importance of leadership, work ethic, faith and community involvement.

 

Vision and Mission

Our vision is to build upon the strength of our existing programs, focusing on player, coach and parent development to become one of the top youth baseball programs in the country. Our mission is to develop

baseball skills and character that enable players and coaches to reach their fullest potential both on and off the field. Our first-class resources for player/coach development and administrative support will allow coaches to coach and players to play. Team Missouri Baseball will employ an age-appropriate combination of lessons, video analysis, strength/agility training, camps, practices, leagues and tournaments to ensure our players enjoy maximum success from youth through college placement.

Organizational Structure

Team Missouri Baseball will be organized in two divisions – youth and high school. The youth division will consist of the six age groups between 8U and 13U. The high school division will consist of the five age groups between 14U and 18U, and offer two levels of play (Exposure and League/SLABA). The League/SLABA program will allow many high school players to continue to play the game at a high level and receive the same development and training as the Exposure program. 

Team Missouri Baseball’s leadership team is: 

 

· Rod Herrenbruck, President

· Russell Jenkins, Vice President

· Cliff Langston, Director of Marketing

· Gregg Edwards, General Manager

· Craig Ringe, Director of Player Personnel

· Ben Margalski, Field Coordinator 

Team Formation/Player and Parent Expectations

Our coaching staffs will be built from the ranks of existing Knights, Longhorns, Devils, Titans and Travelers coaches, and supplemented by St. Louis area youth baseball coaching veterans. 

Our teams will be assembled following tryouts based on a combination of the following considerations: 

 

· Player skill-level

· Regional/geographic location

· Existing relationships

· Player development needs

· Team needs

 

Players will be evaluated on their athletic ability, sportsmanship and work ethic. All Team Missouri Baseball players must demonstrate the desire to compete at a high level with maximum effort. We are looking for families who are supportive of their son, his teammates and the organization. Our families are critical to the success of Team Missouri Baseball – mutual trust and open communication are fundamental requirements.

Program Cost

Our program cost will be consistent with the historic cost of the individual programs, and deliver greater value than other programs in the area. Organizational and team level fundraising, as well as sponsorships will continue to help Team Missouri Baseball deliver the highest value youth baseball development program in the St. Louis

area. Specific age-level costs will be communicated at our upcoming tryouts.

Tryouts

Tryouts for Team Missouri Baseball will be held over four weekends. Players only need to attend one tryout; multiple options are provided to accommodate vacation/sports schedules. All players on our existing teams are expected to attend our tryouts. Please contact Jess at 636-778-1030 or jess@macs1.com to reserve your spot and help us plan accordingly. It is very important to pre-register in the event that try-out locations change at the last minute and we have a current email address to notify you. We also plan to update www.TeamMissouriBaseball.com with any changes or necessary communications over the next few weeks.
