GET TO KNOW
“You have not taught until they have learned.”
– John Wooden –
World Baseball Experience
“I understand that I will never know everything about baseball or life.
What I do know is I owe my life to this game. Baseball has given me some of the most significant moments and sparked most of the joy that has come my way.
This game has positioned me to act on countless opportunities to better myself and those around me. I have built lifelong relationships and seen the world through cultures and people that I never imagined.
My goal is to give back everything this game has taught me to as many young players and coaches as possible. Keeping the constant learning cycle going.”
– N.A. Holmes II –
To change and improve the world through baseball.
“To improve is to change; to perfect is to change often.”
– Winston Churchill –
Learn and teach life lessons with mindfulness, constant and continual improvement; getting a little better than yesterday.
“If you can’t explain it to a six-year-old; then you don’t understand it yourself.”
