ETSB Changing 2016 Format and Schedule
July 31, 2015
Changes are coming folks! ETSB will be branching out for the 2016 season. We will have 3 teams in 2016 with two 18u and one 16u squad. Our teams will be playing in some bigger venues and in new locations. Our "RED" team will be traveling to Atlanta, Georgia, Panama City, Florida, Lamar University, Rice University and SFA for a local event. Our "BLUE" team will be playing at McNeese University, Lamar, Panama City, Florida, Angelina JC and Univ of Louisiana Monroe. Our 16u team will be playing at Angelina JC, Panama City, Florida, SFA, Lamar and UT-Tyler. The schedule will require more travel but will be good challenging venues for all our players. Cost per player will be handled a bit differently for this schedule but we will as always continue to be the best brand of baseball for the money and continue to teach our players how to play the game correctly. Thanks, Rusty.
Some Quotes to live by and think on
"The first time you quit it's hard. The second time it gets easier. The third time, you don't even have to think about it"
" I don't think it's about who you play, I think it's about who you are."
"Process guarantees success. A good proces, guarantees good results."

News and Info
July 28, 2015
ETSB is proud to say that our teams and players compete well at all venues. Our players go on to play College ball at many places and some have even came back to coach in our program after or during college. We have HS and Ex-professional coaches in our program to teach you how to play the game the right way. We promote our players as best we can to College coaches either through Field Level, phone calls or Evaluation Camps. I personally will promise you nothing but our effort to make you better for having played with us. If you need the "Big Name" organization to validate yourself as a player, we are not that organization. We want only competitive hard nose players who give 100% every day and feel no entitlement because of who they are or where they play school ball. Thanks, Rusty Ford
