Facilities

Fort Calhoun Baseball plays on one of the better fields in Nebraska, with many fans and students attending games. We also use a indoor practice facility during cold weather/rain, that has two hitting tunnels, pitching mounds, and a Iron Mike pitching machine. Just got a new Scoreboard thanks to Zig Drywall.

Coach’s Philosophies

 

Philosophies

At the FORT, the baseball program’s goal is to help our student athletes become better individuals both on and off the field.  We have an expectation that every athlete who comes through our program will conduct himself in a manner that not only represents him in a positive way, but also represents our baseball program and community in the most favorable manner.

As a coaching staff, we will do whatever we can to help student athletes achieve goals, as well as give them the tools to meet these expectations.

Our baseball student athletes are expected to have and show these attributes listed below:
