The Cincinnati Hornets Select Baseball Organization is an organization committed to the development of youth baseball players.
Due to considerable interest in the Cincinnati Hornets organization, this will be a new team with the goal of starting in the American Silver division.
Our goals will to be develop players at multiple positions and teaching the proper fundamentals of the game. Keeping in mind the theme of development, each team will roster bat as long as it allowed by league rules. As we look to develop each player in the organization defensively, we will keep in mind that each player will need to learn to play multiple positions. We will give each player an opportunity during practices as well as games to get experience at multiple positions.
Our success will not be determined by our win-loss record. We will seek out a competitive regular season and tournament schedule to adequately challenge the team. We will continually push each team to play at the highest competitive level achieved. Development is the main driver of success but we also see the need to promote a winning atmosphere.
Specific goals for this 12U team:
1) Skill Development – work hard to develop baseball skills of every player with the long-term goal that each player makes their high school baseball team. Ideally, aspiration is to keep these same 11 players together for many years progressing together!
2) Fun Baseball Environment – plan to play in the SWOL Silver Division as a first-year team where we want to build a successful team by winning league games. We want our sons to have fun playing baseball and not evaluate our season only by wins and losses.
3) Building Team Camaraderie – build personal friendships amongst our players with both complimenting good plays and picking each other up after mistakes happen. Respect for each individual is important to build strong team unity, which applies for the parents as well.
