Mentor Baseball League's Mission

Mentor Baseball League's mission is to "promote, develop, supervise, and voluntarily assist in all lawful ways, the interest of those who will participate in Youth Baseball and Softball." Through proper guidance, Mentor Baseball's program assists in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, Little League Baseball is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.
