Welcome From The Director
Welcome to IA Baseball! Our goal is to create an environment where you feel you are a valuable contributor to something greater than yourself. Research shows that the secret to high performance is our deep-seated desire to direct our own lives, to extend and expand our abilities, and to live a life of purpose. Our approach to motivation has three essential elements:
- Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives;
- Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters
- Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.
We will become the driving force of a cultural shift towards development on and off the field. Welcome to the Difference!
– Coach Mario Jimenez

Baseball Core Values
- Matthew 6:33 – Seek first the Kingdom and everything else will take care of itself
- Advocates – The staff and players fully believe we are all FOR each other. Behavior that takes us away from this will not be tolerated.
- Matthew 18:15 – We will go straight to one another if we have an issue. Gossip destroys a team.
- Proactive leadership – Set the standards and hold to them at all costs. We are proactive with families.
