Boys of Summer Athletic Club, Inc., a.k.a. the Boys of Summer, was established in 1989 and is one of the premier amateur baseball organizations in Ohio. A non-profit corporation, the Boys field teams from ages 11 thru 18. We compete locally in the Diamond League, Greater Akron Baseball Federation, Akron Boys Baseball Federation, Cuyahoga Valley Baseball Association, and nationally in the AABC, CABA, USSSA and the NABF.
The objectives of the Boys of Summer Athletic Club are to teach positive values to the players, with a great deal of emphasis on discipline, hustle, attitude, and teamwork. We accomplish this while accelerating ballplayer development and increase their exposure to next level opportunities by providing first-rate coaching, best in class competition and a rich tradition of winning.
The Boys of Summer have won a multitude of league and tournament titles and are a perennial AABC State and Regional competitor. We have played in the AABC World Series in the Mickey Mantle and Pee Wee Reese Divisions, and in different divisions of the CABA World Series.
Given these accomplishments, there is no doubt the Boys of Summer have had great success on the baseball field, but it is the success off the field that creates the most pride within our organization. Since 1989, over 98% of our players, on the 17-18 year old team, have gone to college and of those, 94% have continued playing baseball on a scholarship basis.
The Coaches of the Boys of Summer strive to bring professionalism, integrity and structure to all the players within the organization. All revenues raised by the Boys of Summer, through player contributions, sponsorship, fund raising or other means are directly applied to offsetting the costs of running the organization. The board and coaches of the Boys pledge to continue to improve and streamline their operations to make participation with the organization as cost efficient as possible without compromising the integrity of the program.
