We have 3 Goals for the each season for every individual:

As a program we will remember that our #1 priority and focus is to fulfill our purpose - help
develop better people through competing in the game of baseball. We want to help build
championship kids through striving to win games and championships. We want to give them
learning experiences they can use for the rest of their lives. As a program we are developing a
person first and an athlete second. We are not defined by championships or wins and losses.
We are defined by our culture and our purpose. Winning is clearly a goal, but it is not our
As a program we will coach within the framework of the overall high school experience and
priorities. As a coaching staff we support and encourage multi-sport athletes. The benefits of
multiple sports include: learning to compete, transferable skills, learning different roles on a
team, experiencing different teammates and coaches, showing versatility for college recruiters,
and enhancing the high school experience.
As a program we will work with and support the Watertown Mayer youth baseball organization
and the Watertown Legion baseball program. We encourage parents to be involved as they are
able and willing to help provide a positive and enriching experience for the players. Providing a
quality high school baseball program requires a strong partnership between youth baseball,
parents and the Watertown Mayer School District.
