Program Description: 
During our years of ministry in Barahona, Children of the Nations (COTN) has come to understand that the lack of education, leadership, and character development are among the biggest issues facing young men and families throughout the Dominican Republic. The vision of COTN’s I Love Baseball program is to give the youth of Barahona a place where they can pursue their dream of playing professional baseball while still getting an education, living a balanced life socially, building strong moral character, and growing mentally, physically, and spiritually.
