What if there was an organization dedicated to providing competitive baseball for homeschoolers within a Christian environment? Where winning is important but coming alongside parents and using baseball to help produce strong Christian men is more important?
What if this organization was a 501c corporation, had been around for 19 years, offered a place for your son to play High School baseball and had helped place over 65 young men (including the first ever homeschooled player to be drafted by MLB) into the next level of baseball?
But there is more.
What if this organization had a Middle School Coach with 19 years experience at the pro level, is a Major League Scout and a committed Christian?
Interested?
The GGC Barons (www.gobarons.com) and Head Middle School Coach Lincoln Martin would like to invite you and your 6th, 7th or 8th grader out to a practice to meet us and explore joining our program for the 2012 spring season. (Please RSVP quickly)

Bring your son (and his baseball gear). Hear Coach Martin talk about his vision and then have your son take the field and practice with Coach; while the boys are practicing the Athletic Director will talk specifics about practices, games, tournaments, travel, costs, and more.
Date: Wednesday October 12th
Time: 11-1
Location: Bunten Road Park, 3180 Bunten Road, Duluth GA 30096, Field 1
RSVP: Joanna McFerren at 2baronsbaseball@windstream.net

Barons
Competitive, Christian Baseball with a Purpose

1. The Barons Middle School Team is part of a baseball program that also offers JV and Varsity High school baseball. This highly competitive program has sent over 65 young men into the next level of baseball.

2. The Barons baseball program is part of an organization, the GGC Barons. This 501c organization has been around for 19 years and offers competitive MS/HS sports for Christian Homeschoolers. (Baseball, Softball, Basketball and Golf). The organization is run by a board of directors elected by member families.

3. The Barons MS program is not Rec. Ball; no playing time is guaranteed. However, it is also not travel ball. The Barons MS attempts to balance maximizing the development of players while staying competitive.

4. The Barons MS program is a professionally coached team. The MS head coach, Lincoln Martin has played, coached and scouted for the MLB for almost 20 years. (and continues to do so)

5. The Barons are a Christian organization, meaning all players, parents, coaches, staff all sign a confession of faith.

6. The Barons make competitive sport, within a Christian atmosphere, available for homeschooling families.

7. The Barons have written expectations of players and parents such as: behavior at games, support fundraising, pay fees on time, be prompt for practices and games, etc.
