Coach Frazier: “I have a passion for baseball, and teaching its fundamentals. Our job as coaches is to lead by example, passing along our knowledge of the game, motivating ballplayers, and helping our players become the best they can be—on and off the field. I take pride in that responsibility. We at Dig In Baseball are excited to teach our national pastime and to help our players reach their potential, as they advance into their future. A saying I’ve taken to heart is this: ‘Today give all you have, for what you keep inside you lose forever!’”
