Paintsville Baseball has challenged the players, parents, alumni, and the TIGER community to come together and rise to the next level, both on and off the field. The players must always find ways to improve the team while improving themselves. Striving to be the best and never being fully satisfied until they are at the top of their game. It is crucial that players remember that they represent Paintsville High School Baseball team 24 hours a day, on and off the playing field.
People are watching your actions at all times, in the classroom, a local restaurant and on the playing field. This is one of the main reasons it is so important to make sure you always uphold our proud traditions. The rest of us must find ways to help support the team by getting involved. One of the biggest ways to reach out and become involved is to become a member of the PAINTSVILLE BOOSTER CLUB. The boosters always have projects ongoing. Small task or huge projects your help and support is always needed. Remember "It’s easier to pull a rope than to push it"....so let's all grab hold & pull. Coach Lyons
TIGER BASEBALL PLAYERS are made in the off-season. "You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win and expect to win"
