Welcome To The Philadelphia Reds
The Philadelphia Reds program specializes in the development of young men. We provide an atmosphere in which our members will receive the greatest opportunity to achieve their potential. Our staff will make every effort to provide the resources necessary to realize both team and individual goals. Our program is based on young men with a strong work ethic and exceptional character. Every member of our program is expected to place a high priority on academic, as well as athletic achievement.
The most significant reward of our program is that of opportunity. The opportunity, not only to play baseball, but to acquire all of the fundamentals and skills necessary for success, both on and off the field. Our program endeavors to teach problem solving skills in baseball that can be directly applied to the challenges that one will face in the classroom and in life. In general, characteristics such as responsibility, discipline, preparation and teamwork, when utilized beneficially in baseball, will foster the same benefits in the classroom. This proficiency at problem solving in a variety of areas will make one not only more qualified, but also more competitive in an interview, and more employable in industry. We provide a roadmap and an environment for serious young men who are passionate about baseball and who want to reach their full potential.
Approximately five hundred thousand young men play high school baseball each year. Of these, approximately two percent, ten thousand, will play Division 1 baseball. Approximately eleven percent, fifty-five thousand, will play baseball at any level. It is our fervent endeavor that each one of our players has the opportunity to continue his baseball career at the collegiate level should he have the desire to do so. To that end, our program stresses the importance of consistent hard work and is for highly motivated young men who possess the desire to excel in the classroom and in the athletic arena.
