Dukes Baseball for 26 years have been preparing 13 and 14 year old young men for High School Baseball. Where the SGV Arsenal for over the last 13 years have developed an outstanding reputation for developing 15 to 18 year old High School age level players providing opportunity and exposure to Colleges and Professional Scouts. While baseball is fundamental; the way you approach both age groups is entirely different.
The Dukes Baseball Club and SGV Arsenal have formed an alliance under the Maverick Baseball Academy. While we both are separate organizations, both have the same beliefs in fundamental baseball development of the youth in our community.
Simply put we stick with our core competencies; Dukes 13 & 14 and the Aresenal 15 to 18. Not competing for the same talent in today's travel baseball enviroment has strengthened the total program. The key reason for this joint effort is synergy and the belief players should have the opportunity to develop their skill with out paying fees of $200 to $300 per month offering false promises. Dukes fees are minimal and coaches are not paid, we coach baseball for the love of the game and development of baseball in our community. The Arsenal are very similar in their fee structure, the formula is established and proven.
We look forward to the baseball future as we strive to enhance the experience for all.
Any questions please feel free to contact.

Winter Work Outs 2011
With 130 total Winter Work Out participants and 121 attending the final session, this years works outs surpassed them all nearly doubling last years total. Parents, Players and coaches - Great Job!!!!!
We are the West Covina Dukes Baseball Club, now into 25 years the Dukes Baseball organization has consisted of both 13 & 14 year old Travel Baseball Teams. The program has young men from through out the Citrus Valley, playing both League and various Tournaments in Southern California, Maverick Baseball Park at 350 S. Citrus in West Covina is our home.
The Dukes 13 & 14 teams do not promote or promise to showcase players to colleges or pro scouts at this age. That notion is absurd! That will happen at the next level if the players ability is there and the foundation to succeed laid. The Dukes program with years of hard work has developed a working relationship where it counts at this age. Those relations are with most surrounding area High School coaches from Fontana to Pasadena.
What we teach in preparation for the next level is fundamental and mental baseball. We insist on good grades and try to instill the self-disciplines required to produce upstanding young men with self-confidence and character. Our goals are to prepare these young men for high school baseball as we strive for excellence. In pursuit of that, our agenda is ambitious: we will host several tournaments at Maverick Park, we travel to one major tournament each year and will always have designs to finish in a World Series.
A learning & developmental enviroment is provided at a first class facility that includes a batting cage, hitting stations, outdoor bullpens and video analysis, training equipment and quality coaching staffs; all tools of the program.
Our motto is: "We throw leather, play under control, support teammates, challenge opponents and get down in the dirt.... Dukes Baseball."
Our program develops fine student / athletes, who excel in the classroom and on the field. The results of hitting the books first, then hitting baseballs, has prepared 65 of our graduates for college baseball and 5 are playing professional baseball.... What goes around, comes around..... quality, it's a beautiful thing!
Like all good things in life, the Dukes success does not come easy. It takes hard work and dedication from the coaches, the players and their parents. So come join us and “Let’s Play Ball”.
DUKES CELEBRATE 20 YEARS!!
It was a beautiful California Saturday at Maverick Field when Duke Defrates celebrated 20 years as head of the West Covina Dukes Travel Baseball Organization. We had several former Dukes players that came to the ceremony to help celebrate and 4 of them who made the Major Leagues threw out the first pitch to a catcher from all 4 of our current Dukes Teams. From left to right in the above photo is: Mike Lamb, Adam Simon, Jim Bullard, Chris Cunningham, Jake Haaker, Frank Valerio, Bret Sigmund, Jack Garis, David Enciso, & Jesus Peinado.....to see more photos from the day, click on Photo Albums and choose the OPENING DAY album.
West Covina Dukes Host Washington Nationals
The Washington National 15U Team came to Southern California to play quality baseball in the warm weather before they start their high school season. They really enjoyed their visit to our beautiful Maverick Field, playing the National and American Dukes 14U teams, The Bombers, and the SGV Arsenal. We fed them well and they competed in some great baseball games. The above photo is the 15U Washington Team with the Dukes National team.
