Who’s Coach Ballgame?

James “Coach Ballgame” Lowe was a 4 year starter at Brown University, where he was a captain and All Ivy League Outfielder. He’s spent the last 20 years coaching youth baseball all over the country. He has partnered with MLB and PLAY BALL to coach camps and grow the game of baseball. He has also partnered with the Chicago Cubs and FOX SPORTS as an ambassador.

The lens Coach Ballgame looks through is simple: Give kids the most FUN day possible, while simultaneously building their character. He has a unique ability to engage kids of all ages through the use of music, poetry, and enthusiasm.

Here’s Coach Ballgame’s Documentary, produced by Joe Buck:

Here’s a feature FOX SPORTS did for the NLCS:

Why am I excited for Middle School Matchup?

I’ve coached the ages of 12 and under for the past 2 decades. Once these kids age out of my program, some become my assistant coaches, but most of them I don’t get to see much anymore . To be able to offer these Middle Schoolers a chance to play in a tournament will be so fascinating, and so rewarding and I believe in #happybaseball!

What PLAYERS Like You Are Saying:

I’ve never had that much fun playing baseball

 The boys were smiling all day! When we got in the car, my son said, “That was awesome! I’ve never had that much fun playing baseball!” It was great seeing the boys meet new friends, connect with old friends & become teammates!

What an amazing day. We Had an absolute blast

What an amazing day playing in Middle School Matchup. To say the day was exciting is an understatement. Classmates from various teams came together as one and memories were made. Had an absolute blast.

~ S McBryde ~

the best event out there even better than cooperstown.

Coaching for the last few years, never seen a team so pumped and excited to play as these middle school teams. Amazing event to see all the kids playing with classmates for the first time. It's the best event out there by far...yes, even Cooperstown.
