Desert Baseball Knights

DBK (2018-2019)

Desert Baseball Knights is a newly formed travel baseball organization serving children ages 8-14 in the Eastern Valley. Desert Baseball Knights was created to give economically disadvantaged athletes the ability to learn a higher level of baseball skills and to play against other higher level baseball teams throughout California and the continental United States. DBK is unlike other travel division programs because there is no monthly fee charge for the players to participate. All coaches are volunteers and money is needed for uniform, equipment, and other expenses are obtained though donations and fundraisers. We also plan on hosting 4 or more free baseball/softball training camps to help players that are registered with the local recreational baseball league. 

The funding through ACF will be used to outfit 9 economically disadvantaged Eastern Valley travel ball teams with the proper equipment to train their players for a higher level of baseball play. The funding will also be used to purchase equipment which will be utilized during our free baseball/softball clinics. The clinics will be operated by the DBK travel players to instill in them the importance of giving back to your community, to teach them patience and understanding, and at the end of each clinic the feeling of a job well done. The final goal of the DBK program is to show each player the value of hard work, commitment, and humility with the hopes that going through our program will assist them through high school and maybe earning college scholarships.
