Welcome to the Seminoles Baseball Club Website
The Seminoles Baseball Club is a non-for-profit organization set up to provide highly competitive baseball at all ages. From 10-40 years old. We are an "equal-opportunity" club that provides a place for baseball players to play, learn and excel at every possible level. The Seminole Baseball Club was set up to provide professional instruction for young players to learn the right way to play baseball with professionalism, integrity and character. All of our coaches have professional experience and know how to play the game the right way and look forward to showing young players who are willing to learn and be coached to playing at the highest level they can get too. We cover all aspects of the sport from the actual game part of baseball to strength and conditioning as well as taking proper care of their arms and bodies and nutrition.
Our adult players consist of current independent players that continue to pursue the dream of playing in the MLB, ex-MLB players who still enjoy playing the game, college players trying to stay sharp in the off-season and ex-college players that just love the game.
All of our teams travel the country to play in national tournaments and world series. The Seminoles Baseball Club is funded by team membership fees, Team fund-raisers and private or corporate sponsorship. The costs of playing travel baseball is large sometimes. What we try to do is provide a way for players to be able to play travel baseball no matter what financial situation their family is in. One out-of-state tournament can cost on player up too $1000. Our goal is to raise the money so players are able to experience travel baseball and at the same time get the best coaching and tutoring to help them become stellar players.
