"HONORING AMERICAS HEROES THROUGH AMERICA"S GREATEST PASTIME"
We play for a bigger Purpose!
Going the extra mile of Servant Leadership!
The US Military Baseball Organization is a professional baseball team composed military and civilian alike that play in honor of those who have served and who have committed the ultimate sacrifice for America’s freedom and her allied countries. Military Baseball was founded by an Army Christian Chaplain and a group of Veterans who have chosen to go the extra mile to honor their fallen comrades in Iraq and Afghanistan through this program but using baseball to as a vehicle to give back to communities and youth. Military Baseball is an independent professional baseball team and an LLC that is dedicated to serving communities through the game of baseball and giving back through our nonprofit. Baseball players are paid professionals who have committed themselves to this cause and allow themselves to play for a greater purpose than self-glorification or selfish ambitions. Players are recruited though to play for MLB and other professional organizations from our tours of love and service. This is a NON-DOD Affiliated company that is not funded by the Department of the Defense but is dedicated to those who have died or suffered in the line of fire. Military Baseball honors those servant leaders who have gone the extra mile and to teach a message of hope, courage, love and faith in the ways of Christ.
“Chaps” after 15 years of active duty service was inspired to create this vehicle to communicate a message of love and servant hood. Military Baseball is that connection that brings people together that for a common purpose in honor of our Armed Forces and to give back to youth across the globe. After serving two tours in Iraq with line units and as a burn unit Chaplain at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio Texas, Chaps struggled to find peace and hope again through his dark times of depression and PTSD. While part time coaching at San Antonio Community College, would he regain his joy for life and a game that represented so much more than a ball, bat and glove but a space of joy, happiness and love. Military Baseball is based off Chaplain Adriatico’s personal experiences and multiple stories and connections of other Soldiers who have given so much. We as a team and organization are simply composed of staff and talented baseball players who wish to encourage others in the way of love, courage, and integrity through the ways of Christ.
One particular Soldier laying in a hospital bed at Brooke Army Medical Center in 2010 after returning home from Iraq tattooed on his left chest as he awoke with both his legs and left arm missing with 20% burns by an IED attack in 2010 would be the foundational message of Military Baseball. When asked would you do it again, he responded, “Sir, better me than my buddies.”
Your past does not have to be your future.
"For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."
It is better to give than to receive.

Salvation is open to all who seek to it.
