I Love Baseball

Dominican Athletes Share their Love for Baseball with Local Children

Standing in the middle of happy chaos, Rob Allan wonders where to begin. Boys had come from every corner of the community and were bubbling over with unrestrained excitement—the I Love Baseball (ILB) team was here to teach them! 

Wordless Wednesday: I Love Baseball

Did you know that COTN has a baseball training program in the Dominican Republic? The vision of our I Love Baseball® (ILB) program is to give Dominican youth a place where they can pursue their dream of playing professional baseball while also getting an education, living a balanced life socially, building strong moral character, and growing mentally, physically, and spiritually. 

Praising God Through the Best and the Worst: Darkin's Story

Every day after practice, the I Love Baseball (ILB) players heap their plates high with rice, beans, and meat. And almost every day, after he's served himself, Darkin walks over to ILB program director Ruddy Suero and asks if he can take his plate home, to share with his family. Ruddy always says yes, and Darkin tucks the food away to bring home to his mother and five siblings. Then the seven of them share his meal.
