We are MtB. We are … pursuing excellence…on the field…off the field…everywhere. I Cor. 10:31.
The Mustangs were formed in 2002 for homeschooled young men to participate in high school and junior high-level competitive baseball.
The Mustangs is both an athletic organization and a ministry to homeschool families. To reflect this "More than Baseball" vision, the Mustangs were renamed the "MtB Mustangs" in 2007.
The program is divided into two divisions -- high school and junior high. The priority for the high school division is to field a single competitive varsity squad.
The junior high team will consist of a competitive team and may also have a "farm team" (or "scrimmage squad") of players within the eligibility guidelines (see "Eligibility" section under Policies and Procedures). In the event of an opening on the junior high squad, the coach may elect to "call up" a player from the farm team to suit up and fill the opening as needed.
All teams will be chosen at the sole discretion of the coaches based on tryouts and personal knowledge of players' abilities. Tryouts are held during the winter off-season, usually during the month of November.
The MtB Mustangs exist to provide homeschooled young men with the benefits of participation in organized baseball in a setting that honors the God who created them. We desire to provide our players with excellent instruction in the skills required for baseball and to also with opportunities to use those skills at appropriate competitive levels, up to and including the highest level of secondary school competition. We are committed to modeling and teaching Christian character traits, including self-discipline, self-respect, respect for authority and good sportsmanship.

Statement of Faith
There is only one living and true God. He is one Being who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Bible is the inspired and inerrant word of God.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity. Fully God and fully man, by His death on the cross and physical resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ provided a means for us to be reconciled to God and receive the gift of eternal life.
All of us are affected by sin and are in need of God's forgiveness. The good news is that each individual is forgiven of his or her sins upon trusting alone in Jesus Christ's finished work on the cross for salvation. Salvation is by God's grace, through faith, apart from good works.
