Dayton Sting Baseball Club-12U Open Evaluations For The 2014 Season
The Dayton Sting Baseball Club is actively seeking dedicated, hard working individuals to round out a very talented group of baseball players. Potential players must be very passionate about the game of baseball and be willing to train year round. The Sting employs a proven training system that utilizes the experiences of several former college and professional athletes to prepare students for the highest levels of the sport. This can be validated by the number of current and former Sting players who are rostered on their high school varsity teams. We are actively seeking at least one player for 2014, please contact Coach Tim for a private evaluation session! All workouts will be held at our home facility on Heincke Road. This team will be playing in the CABA World Series in 2014.
