  • Have as much fun playing baseball while competing at very high level

 

Upgrades To Indoor Facility Finished!

We are pleased to announced that we have completed our $400,000 indoor facility renovation.  New LED lightning was put in, as well as brand new field turf being installed throughout the facility.  The batting cage gates were all completely replaced with brand new steel gates.  New steel entry way gates were installed for the infield entry way, and new netting was installed along the batting cage walkway.  An enclosed 15′ x 15′ office, complete with heating and air conditioning, was built.  Both bathrooms have been completely re-done with new tile, paint and baseboards.  The facility floors were painted with a grey epoxy flooring paint.  We have installed three swamp cooler units in the facility for the summer months.  A brand new roof was installed atop the building, which will help with temperatures being regulated better in both the winter and summer months.  The outside of our building was completely repainted as well.  We have replaced all seven batting cage nets with new, industrial strength #60 gauge knotted nylon netting, that was dipped twice in a synthetic coating.  These, along with several other upgrades, make our facility the largest, state-of-the art facility in the area!

Muckdogs Formulating A 16U And 18U Spring Team That Will Begin Play In 2020

The Muckdogs Baseball Club is excited to announce the formulation of a 16U and a 18U Spring Team.  These two teams are set to begin competition in the spring of 2020.  The plan for these teams has already been in the works for over a year and we are spending the next year researching and formulating a model that will help compliment our summer team and fall/winter team products.

It will be an experience for our players that will allow them to continue to play high level baseball, with qualified coaching, while still leaving them plenty of time to focus on their academics.  We have been in contact with some of the other top travel organizations in the country who are putting together comparable products for their players, and will work closely with those organizations.  We will have a game/tournament schedule that will help provide both development and exposure to our athletes.  As the spring of 2020 approaches we will be releasing more information.

We look forward to helping the next group of graduating seniors find homes at solid academic institutions where they can extend their playing careers.  Below is a link to our 2019 signing class:

Testimonial To Our Commitment

Hello Ken and Bret, We the Pinto family would like express our appreciation to you and your organization for the years our son Jonathan Pinto played baseball with you. The knowledge and expertise of the sport he learned helped him land a baseball scholarship with Central Washington University where he is today. Without the professionalism of Ken Camel of the Muckdogs this wouldn’t of been possible. We are truly grateful for the Muckdogs Organization. Thank you!! – Maria and Carlos Pinto

Hey Bret. Its Milo the manager of the 9u Morros. I just want to say that I enjoy watching you coach your kids. The detail and the want that you get out of your kids is amazing. Great job man. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing you down the road at a tourney. Thanks for your time. – Emilio Lopez

Hi Bret, Just wanted to pass along a note to you regarding this past weekend’s tournament in Sparks. I’m the pitching coach for the 11 U Morgan Hill Assault team that played you in the championship. Your team has a great bunch of kids that are talented, have great attitudes, and play the game the way it should be played. That’s a tribute to you, your organization and the coaches of that team. It’s not often at this level that you see a travel team that combines all the intangible things needed for success and growth. Most of the time it’s just a team thrown together to get a trophy. In shaking their hands after the game, not one player was down, they all kept their heads up and greeted us with class and dignity. The coaches as well. That tells me they are good kids being taught to be gracious in victory and defeat. In short, you have a first class program with good coaches, committed parents and kids that have a passion to enjoy the experience of baseball. It was a pleasure to play you guys and we look forward to seeing you again In the future. – Rich Taylor Morgan Hill Assault 11U

Hi Bret, I want to finally extend my sincere appreciation to you and your organization for the impact you have had on our son. I remember very clearly the day Cian and Tucker Scozzafava came home from a winter camp together and said that they were invited to try out for the Muckdogs. Cian was already a nut about baseball, but getting the opportunity to play for the Muckdogs was a dream come true! The past three years have been awesome. Our life in Northern Nevada has revolved around baseball. Most of our friends and family think we are crazy, but the joy that the game brings Cian and the fun we have had as family watching Cian and his teammates grow-up is immeasurable.

Your commitment to excellence and to the standards of your organization are what set you apart. The structure, the rules, the code of conduct, the two hour parent/player meetings and the occasional required Starbucks meeting (thankfully only one for us!) are not for everyone, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We did have moments of frustration, but in the end, this is what we signed up for and what we expected and it’s a huge contributor to the success our son has enjoyed on and off the field.

Thank you for your passion and commitment. I know you deal with more drama, whining, complaining, politics and discontent that we ever care to know, but you don’t carry it with you on the field. You are firm with the kids, but you manage to craft your leadership in just the right way to build character, baseball IQ, love and respect for the game. Cian will carry this experience with him for a lifetime. I hope he continues to play baseball for as long as he loves the game, but even if he doesn’t, I know the lessons he learned as a Dog will carry over to everything he does.

Best of luck and continued success! We’ll be following the Muckdogs for a long time to come! We’ll send Cian back to you for summer ball when he’s 16!
– Mark Sahler

Hello Bret,  We chatted a bit after the championship game against Brentwood Blast on Sunday.  My son is one of the coaches and also coaches the Heritage High varsity team.  We are both very impressed on how you hold the kids attention with high intensity constantly teaching with positive attitude and correcting mistakes without breaking their spirits.  Your energy and enthusiasm is off the hook and I would let you loose with my grandson in a heartbeat.  Good Luck to your team I’m sure you will do very well this year and years to come . Maybe see you when your in the Central Valley again – Lon Wheelock
