Jeff Howard has been retained by the Country of Haiti to be the First General Manager of the Haitian Olympic Baseball Team. 

He was stunned to see the talent that Haiti had, he saw 12-15 year old`s throwing 90 mph, some of the young men he saw were raw with little coaching, he and Al`s goals are to build a team of coaches to harness these young men`s talent and gifts.

They will need training facilities, room and board, and training, lots of training.

Our goal is to raise $1,000,000.00 so that we may create a coaching staff, facilities both in the U.S. and Haiti, room and board for players, coaches, and staff.

Join us in making a difference! 

We are raising money to benefit our non-profit Reach New Heights Inc, an organization that is building baseball fields and organizing baseball programs to give kids in Haiti scholarship and education opportunities.
