The Shepherds are a hard-working, ministry-based, group of young men who are striving to become leaders in whatever arena they are placed in. We will be playing 30 games during the summer and leading numerous camps in which we will teach not only the game of baseball, but the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Shepherds enter the Sunset Baseball League in 2019 with a great following and are sure to make some noise.
