Working with Athletic Missions International, Coach Jaime Arredondo, his wife Diana and 4 former Fire players hosted a baseball camp/vacation bible school in the Sousa area of the Dominican Republic this past June.
The camp had a great turnout as 9 volunteers worked with over 100 kids from ages 2 to 16 years old. We were blessed with many kids accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Plus we had a chance to play and teach baseball with a great group of kids and local coaches. We will be going back in June of 2013, join us if you can!
In January of 2012 The Christian based Houston Fire started a team from scratch. Our goal was to put together a group of high character, athletic Metro players and parents, for the long haul. We knew that as we taught the fundamentals of Select baseball that we “would take our lumps” on the scoreboard… and we did. BUT! The results are that now we have a fundamentally sound group of athletes that have accumulated Select baseball experience and are more ready to play at the Select level. We are searching for 2 experienced pitchers and a catcher. We practice out of the Field of Champions a top-notch facility with 4 practice fields, a full diamond playing field w/ lights, 2 full cages and an air conditioned rec room. We will be practicing through the summer and playing 11U Select baseball in the fall league at CFSA. We have testimonials and references on the coach’s philosophy and effectiveness available at Firebb.org. If you are looking for a baseball home… call me Jaime Arredondo at 832-671-8317.
