MONARCHS BASEBALL

The purpose of the Monarchs baseball program is to develop young Christian men of character through the great game of baseball. We believe that baseball contains fundamental principles, which provide tools for success in life.

Our program will focus on teaching these baseball and life fundamentals. We will reach young men for God's Kingdom that could not be reached through other avenues (academics, arts, music, etc.)

• To build friendships around the game of baseball

• To teach young men mutual accountability

• To install the higher purpose of God's Kingdom

• To teach high-school athletes the fundamentals of great baseball

• To compete at a high level year-round

• To measure success through getting better every day, on and off the field

• To help guide high-school boys to grow into young men of character

• To play baseball for the LOVE of the game

The Monarchs carry the ‘independent’ history of Kansas City baseball; avoiding the “club team” stigma, with a rich heritage and over 10 years of excellence, seven league championships, and during the 2015 spring season notching 250 victories for the franchise.

The Monarchs are a Kansas City Independent / Charter League (KCIC) championship team and not a member of KSHSAA; as such, have the ability to recruit players and be an alternative high-school program for those who do not play for another high school program.

Coach Nelson has been Head Coach of the Monarchs Baseball team for ten years, and was instrumental in starting the program in 2006. He has played baseball all of his life, including time in the Minor Leagues with the Cincinnati Reds.

Coach Nelson’s life rules include:

1) Understand the game, respect the game.

2) Play every pitch, every game.

3) Don't just do your best - look to improve every day, every game...

4) Play "old-school."

5) Be your own man.

6) And most important - play for the Love of the game.
