Meeting God in Baseball is an organization founded by Don Schulz, Jeff McDonald and professional baseball players and other experienced baseball coaches.  This organization focuses on developing Dominican baseball coaches as leaders of young men and ministering to young men to have a spiritual impact on them.  For more information, you can visit our web-site at http://meetinggodinbaseball.org/site/.

Play Ball Sports Academy actively supports this ministry through financial support and the donation of useful baseball equipment.  Donations can be dropped off at any time at our facility and we will see to it that the equipment goes directly to young Dominican baseball players who will greatly appreciate the gift.  The types of donations that are needed are: Baseballs, tennis balls, baseball mitts, metal bats, catchers equipment and cleats.  We also accept soccer balls which will be appreciated by non-baseball players.

Play Ball Sports Academy also supports this ministry financially via a percentage of our revenues.  We will also be hosting future clinics and programs where the proceeds will be specifically designated to Meeting God in Baseball.  We will also accept any financial contributions that you may be so moved to contribute and see to it that the money goes directly to the organization.  If you have any questions about our involvement, you can contact dante@playballohio.com.
