Why I coach with East Coast Sox?

I have chosen the opportunity to coach with East Coast because it will allow me the opportunity to not only coach in a well-known organization, but also allows me to coach young men that want to compete and play the game at a higher level. I am a strong believer in developing young men, not only in skills related to their craft of baseball, but also in the values and morals to become outstanding young men in society. The East Coast organization and the Christian atmosphere that is promoted will allow me the opportunity to combine my love for baseball and help myself and young men grow in our walk with Christ. The combination of these things makes the opportunity to coach within an organization like East Coast a wonderful decision. I am extremely thankful for this opportunity and I look forward to a great summer.
