Our Purpose and Mission:
Waco Heat Baseball and Softball organization is a select baseball and softball program created to directly impact youth in the Waco community and surrounding areas. Waco Heat provides a competitive program and alternative to kids that are excelling at the little league level and want to participate in a more competitive baseball environment. Our program is not for profit (501(c)(3) filed April 2013)and derived from a need in the Waco community to provide competitive baseball, without the typical price tag that some programs offer. Waco Heat also welcomes anyone and everyone to tryout and be a part of our organization.
We strive to use our program to target inner city youth in the Waco and surrounding area that would not have had the opportunity to play competitive baseball. These types of opportunities are imbedded in the evolution of professional baseball as certain individuals of various demographics were historically allowed to participate in professional baseball over time. Although the doors have been thrown wide open today, economics still can have a direct impact on select baseball participation. We do make our program affordable but require 100% parent/guardian support for each player. Select baseball, specifically Waco Heat, may not be for everyone and some may benefit just as well from Little League Baseball/Softball. However, if you are ready for your child to take their game to the next level, we are the place to do so.
Finally, the organization was created because of my personal desire to serve the community and serve our youth. This desire to serve and give back comes from my own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I have encouraged like-minded coaches to do the same in character and in action when teaching our boys the game of baseball and to instill biblical principals when ever possible. It is not a requirement by any means to be a part of what we do, but we embrace it 100%. This program also exists because of all the managers that originally jumped on board from its inception. It could not have begun without the efforts of those managers and volunteers that have supported this vision along side with me. Thank you for your interest in Waco Heat and again, we welcome any and everyone to check into our program and see if it’s right for you and your child,
