    My name is Jim Knight and I am the founder and head coach of Focus Baseball.

    Our organization is a 17U team that will be playing in Impact and Perfect Game events this summer in NC and some surrounding states. Focus Baseball was created to give good kids that love the game a chance to play in a competitive environment with experienced coaching at an affordable price.

    Our inaugural season was this past fall. We went 6-8-3 overall, but went 5-2-1 in our last 2 events, including a championship at the Perfect Game Winston-Salem Dash in early November.

    We are looking for 4-5 players for the summer season. We are only looking for varsity level players capable of starting on their team this spring. We currently have 8 on our summer roster and are looking for certain positions (see below), but any great player who happens to be a quality kid would be a welcome addition.

    Positions needed: Pitching, a catcher, 3B, and middle infield (with the ability to play SS)

    So, why would you want your player to join the Focus Baseball family?

    Here are a few reasons:

    COST—Most organizations charge over $2000 for the summer season because you pay for the coaches, an indoor facility and other expenses of the organization itself. Focus Baseball will be less than HALF that cost, since Coach Knight doesn’t get paid and we do our workouts OUTSIDE…..it IS baseball, after all.

    COACHING—Coach Knight spent 3 seasons in the minor leagues of professional baseball as a pitcher and played overseas. He then spent 13 years as a varsity head baseball coach at the high school level. On top of that, Coach Knight has been a professional instructor for two decades. Many Showcase teams have young guys coaching that have never been on a H.S. staff….Coach Knight has won over 200 high school games as a coach and specializes in player development.

    ORGANIZATION—Focus Baseball is proud of its ability to communicate with parents & players. We run
    outstanding practices, created specifically to meet the needs of individual players. Since we hand-pick our team, we aren’t a money-making group looking to increase the bottom line….we simply create the best situation for our players.

    OPPORTUNITIES—At Focus Baseball, every kid plays A LOT. Why join an organization that MAY let you play some when you can join us, play in the SAME tournaments at the SAME venues and actually PLAY? If you join our group, you get on the field…..it is that simple. Plus, we play at some of the greatest facilities in the region (we played at Clemson, Appalachian State, N.C. State, Gardner-Webb and the Triple A ballpark in Winston-Salem this fall, to name a few).

    EXPOSURE—We have one of the best websites of any organization around…..check us out at www.focusbaseball.org!
