National Director Kelly Ahrens looks to create opportunities that are unique and valuable to player's and families across the country. Stars and Stripes has had over 3,000 player's participate with the organization and has had hundreds of professional, collegiate and major league players and coaches as a part of this organization.

Thinking outside of the box has provided benefit to families who have high family values and want the best opportunities for their kids. Once a part of the family, resources and support are provided for the term of a player's career and also employment opportunities once their playing days are over. We develop players and coaches.

The involvement of families and their feedback drives this business and their voice is heard and action is taken. Good families represent the make up of this organization and motivates Stars and Stripes to continue to provide opportunities to families seeking these unique opportunities. The Gold Team model has been in development for over a year. We recently fielded a 11U Gold Team that acts as the model for others to follow. Your participation is of the most importance to Stars and Stripes and we welcome you to become a part of this family and join a team that stands for proper development of players.

Stars and Stripes appreciates the opportunity to be a part of your son and families development and provides a continual foundation in which you can draw from as situations and times dictate.

  • Scott Caloiaro Nice but show me how many kids make the big leagues from this team. Are the kids doing this or are their parents forcing this upon them? What about school, friends, family and extracurricular activities outside of baseball? Wake up people! Your children have more of a chance to be a doctor, lawyer, school teacher fireman and police officer than they do a major leaguer. Straight from the mouth of a major league coach!
  • My Son Plays Baseball Scott Caloiaro I am appreciative of your post. Dream killers exist in every world including the baseball world. Who said anything about playing in the Big Leagues? This post asks for people to learn more about the program so they can better manage responses like you from people who do not understand and who are deemed a "hater". Haters help educate everyone and often are good at gaining a better understanding of a situation. It is about develop. Simple develop of a player on and off the field. It is about goals, aspirations and hard work needed to make it to the top in whatever you do. It was great spending the weekend and filming for the upcoming Reality TV Show that will be on Fox Sports later this year. The beauty was to spend the day with Rob Bruno from Nor Cal baseball who has had 65 players come through his program who have played and or are playing in the major leagues. He has a great idea of what it takes to make it as a Big Leaguer and also as a person. It was great spending time with Mike Remlinger who shared many Tom Glavin, Greg Maddux and John Smoltz stories so we can all learn what it takes to be successful. The message is not anything but hard work and good work habits that will carry you for the rest of your life. I am thankful and humble to spend time with these kids and families who are willing to endure the pessimistic views that you represent. To think that I have a part in the development of a successful teacher, coach, doctor, lawyer or even baseball player is an awesome feeling.
