About The San Diego Longhorns

The San Diego Longhorns Baseball Club is a high quality baseball organization serving all of San Diego County. 

Through our program, we expose both the family and player to the proper approach to playing the game of baseball.We use practice drills, game situations, tournament play, and homework assignments to teach the necessary facets of the game. We attempt to give the players the skills they need to continue playing baseball competitively through high school, and potentially into college, if they choose.

Through our program, hopefully players will develop a strong character not just within baseball, but in other parts of their lives as well.

Currently, the Longhorns are fielding 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, and 16U teams.

Objective

To expose both the parent and participant to the proper approach of learning the skills to enhance the growth and development of the participant in the activity of baseball.  This will include both the physical and psychological approach.

Goal

To allow young ballplayers to develop the baseball skills and healthy attitudes that will allow them to move eventually into high school level ball if they choose. To achieve this goal, the club is committed to bringing in quality coaching and dedicated players, and are pleased to have the support and encouragement of family and friends.
