MBA Policies and Procedure

Here at Mercedes Baseball, we believe firmly in the old African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child.” Mercedes Baseball Academy focuses on Teaching, Serving, and Mentoring our athletes, but also worry about their future and success.  

Our principal goal as a program is to bear impact on the lives of every child we work with in the areas of sports, academics, social emotional, and wellness. As a program, we do not just see the potential of our kids because of their talents on the field but the man and woman they are to become. We believe that every child that comes to us has a purpose.
