Click on any of the slide show items below to read about the Midwest Marlins program and what we're about and how much we love baseball. 

    "The other team was not part of my equation. Rather, I drew strength, Confidence, from the sure knowledge that I had done all things possible to prepare myself and our team to perform at our highest level in competition. The opponent might perform at a higher level - or not. I didn't concern myself with the other team's perparation and potential: I just concentrated on ours."

    - John Wooden, Wooden on Leadership
