"I wanted my son to play baseball to learn healthy competition, teamwork, sportsmanship and fellowship. When his high school failed miserably at this task......I looked throughout the country for an opportunity to teach my son these important lessons in life and to reinforce our family values. Coast to Coast met our needs. They provided real tryouts, opportunities to play for pro-scouts, college coaches, and other staff who really enjoyed working with teens, providing appropriate discipline, direction and supervision. My son traveled to Puerto Rico , Europe and Australia . His baseball skills improved dramatically and so did his self-esteem. Coast to Coast is a wonderful opportunity for teens!"
