David and Camille, here. So, you want to know more about the baseball life? Well, then you have come to the right place, because educating others is our specialty and we want to show you around. Regardless of your age or baseball status, we have something to pique your interest. So grab a cup of coffee, a smoothie, or a protein shake, and get comfortable. We want to get to know YOU.

We're so excited you've stumbled upon this little space we created within the BIG world-wide-web, just so that we could connect with you. Via this pretty awesome platform, we educate young aspiring baseball players and their families, on what it takes to stand out in the world of baseball. We start by helping you identify if the path you are currently on is headed straight for your intended destination. Once we get to know you a little better, we set you up with a roadmap so that you can say you did everything you could to reach your goals while knocking a few out of the park in the process.



David and Camille at New York Fan Cave

the MLBW blog


 Ok, Camille talking now… From the moment I met David, baseball was a part of our lives. When I graduated from college and shortly after we got married, I decided to stop working in favor of traveling with him while he pursued this crazy dream of becoming a major league baseball player. At that time – 2012 – I started documenting our adventures in baseball together because my passion has always been writing, and I needed a way to release all the craziness that accompanied our lives. David made his MLB debut in 2013 with the New York Yankees, the same year that we welcomed our first baby. Since then, we had another baby boy, and David retired from playing. Now a coach for the New York Yankees, our adventures in baseball do not appear to be slowing down, in fact, I would say we are approaching the adolescent years. Because of this, I decided to start documenting it from a whole new perspective.

Gratitude and the Holidays

By Camille | Nov 21, 2012

Sometimes I think I do a lot of venting on this blog. By opening myself up to the world and writing my innermost thoughts for everyone to read, I am afraid I may sometimes come across as ungrateful; the same goes for my twitter, where I often lack a filter. Hopefully it’s just my ultra-sensitivity …

Enough About Me, Let's Talk About the Fall League

By Camille | Nov 16, 2012

I do enough talking about me on this blog, so let’s talk about the Arizona Fall League, shall we? One word to describe it is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” Is that an acceptable adjective? Oh well! I’m actually a bit sad I didn’t have the chance to spend the entire seven weeks out here, but I am elated …

My Arizona Fortune

Sorry I have been so absent! It has been a crazy few weeks, well, with the election and American Airlines losing my luggage. Oh yeah! I haven’t told you all about that fiasco. My bag tag got switched with another flier’s and my suitcase ended up on vacation in Lima, Peru. The nerve. I’ve never …

Honesty: the off-season blues

By Camille | Oct 24, 2012

I’m going to level with you all. I was going to sit on this post given I’m a little more emotional than usual but I guess I’ve become rather fearless when it comes to putting myself out there. For me, honesty is the best policy and while I happen to love my life, it isn’t …

A noteworthy read

By Camille | Oct 24, 2012

I recently had the pleasure of reading a story on Phil Coke written by Jonah Keri. It was remarkably heartwarming to realize the success that Coke experienced after a long road of struggles in the Minor Leagues. Coke, like David, was drafted and developed in the Yankees Organization. Coke did get traded a few years …

My Testimonial: Baseball and the Lord

By Camille | Oct 21, 2012

It’s an interesting story, one I haven’t shared with the world quite yet. Just recently David was given the book Nine Innings: Baseball and Spirituality by a fan in the Arizona Fall League. With it came a note from the lady who so graciously gave it to him explaining how she was compelled by the …
