Our History

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." ~ Phil 4:13

Military Athletics is dedicated to the character and the spiritual care for all in servant leadership through athletics, youth programs and honoring our armed forces.

To understand our vision, you must first understand our origins. Born out of sheer love of baseball, USA Military Baseball Inc. (unit of Military Athletics Inc.) got its auspicious beginning on a Friday night with a dedicated chaplain, a group of his sailors, and a dusty sandlot. With just a few old wooden baseball bats, a couple baseballs, and 3 worn out gloves, the Military Baseball’s story launched into flight carrying with it, a dream and a vision beyond what any of them could imagine.

 

The groundbreaker of this vision, affectionately known as “Chaps”, possesses a passion for God, baseball, and his service members. The unparalleled relationship with his sailors led to an explosion of support and participation. In just under 2 weeks, and with 40 eager athletes, Military Baseball was on path to becoming the juggernaut it is today. Within a few short months, these athletes were lining up to compete against professional baseball teams, such as the Fukushima Hopes of Japan and the Chiba Makings. The excitement was palpable, as crowds of over 3,000 fans filled the stands to watch Military Baseball square off against various teams from Japan. The national buzz continued as the games attracted the attention of national media outlets, such as the Tokyo Times.
