The "Edina Way" embodies who we are as players and coaches, both on and off the field. We strive to be great from being a good teammate to playing hard and sacrificing, so that others may benefit. Recently the Edina Baseball Association saw a need to help others...not in North America. The Dominican Republic has a strong tradition of producing world class baseball athletes and often they play with poor equipment and uniforms. "Over the years we have compiled gear like uniforms, ball caps and bats, and we wanted to put them to good use.' said Greg Brown, former EBA President. "So, it was natural to join forces with another great program like the Eden Prairie Baseball Association to collect and distribute slightly used equipment to the players of the Dominican Republic."
By the looks on the players' faces we accomplished our goal of being good stewards for baseball. Who knows...we may see some of these players called up to the Big League soon!
