We are a unique baseball team consisting entirely of Catholic priests and seminarians who were one time High School and/or College baseball players. We play fast pitch hardball with Catholic High School varsity baseball teams in front of crowds of up to 1000 people at Minor league ball parks in the Washington DC area in an effort to raise awareness and interest in the great vocation to the Catholic Priesthood. We are in our fourth season and our record is 5-3-1. In each game we have a third inning stretch where we address the crowd on the topic of vocations. Here are two videos produced by the Archdiocese of Washington’s office of Multi-media that will give you a much better idea of what we are about:
