Bethlehem Mickey Mantle, Inc - the BRAVES Travel Baseball Club sets out to instill a passion for the game of baseball within each of our players so that their efforts will earn for them a skill level and knowledge of the game unsurpassed by any other local program. We believe that athletes must be student's first as well as good citizens and members of their communities. To accomplish this we monitor our players demanding schedule through out the season and stay in constant communication with all involved so that our players perform on the field, in school and at home.
Our not-for-profit, 501(c)3 corporation Bethlehem Mickey Mantle, Inc. supports the mission statement of the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC): "The AABC strives to enlarge and advance the scope of amateur baseball by stimulating interest and competition and to provide a sound, experienced organization to assist and educate local groups in obtaining the maximum health and citizenship values."

The BRAVES have have Travel Teams for ages 13U, 14U, 15U, 16U, 17U, 18U, 23U.
The BRAVES Teams begin training each year in January, inside the Gym with our Winter Workouts & Conditioning. By mid-April, we are outside on our field to begin our pre-season training. Our regular Summer Baseball Season starts around Memorial Day with the goal of making it into the post season Tournaments in July.
Our teams then take a few weeks off for the rest of the Summer and come back in September to begin our Fall Ball on weekends in September and October. A special session of Batting & Hitting Training is then scheduled for early Winter.
The BRAVES Baseball Program is Year-Round.
