About the Company:
The Allen County Aces organization was created in 2015 to provide a higher level of competition for talented and motivated area baseball players with a commitment to the improvement of their skills in a family focused environment. The team works hard to win games, but winning never becomes more important than teamwork and good sportsmanship. The Aces’ coaches ask players to work towards excellence, not perfection. We believe baseball is a fun and challenging game that requires players to develop the ability to overcome mistakes and to look forward to their next opportunity. Ultimately, the development of skills and team focused play is our guideline for our program, which we believe will create better baseball players and better individuals.
