Austin Wings Baseball
Wings Baseball was formed in 1999 to operate a first class program for worthy youth in Austin and Central Texas. Through its program, Wings Baseball offers young men the opportunity to be instructed and compete in an advanced, positive environment that promotes good choices, constructive life skills, academic success and community leadership. Open to players regardless of race or economic background, the program is conducted year round.
The Wings are well known and respected locally, statewide and nationally. As a member of the American Premier Baseball Association, Wings Baseball has enjoyed success at all levels, including a fifth place finish at the Connie Mack World Series in 2000, a Triple Crown 15U National Championship in 2005, a Premier Junior National Championship in 2006, second place finishes in the Sophomore and Freshmen Premier National Championships in 2006, and a Premier Junior National Championship in 2008. In addition, many teams have completed summer play in the top ten of their respective age groups.
Most players that have participated in Wings Baseball have continued their baseball careers in college and/or professional baseball. While this is a goal for all players and the program, the number one priority is the development and maturation of these young men during their participation.
