The Miami Valley Warhawks Baseball Club, a non-profit 501(c) 3 charity, was founded in 1990 by Ron Slusher. Ron had a dream to create a baseball program that would grow to National heights. A program that would allow young men, regardless of their financial background, a free and equal opportunity to improve their baseball skills and increase their chances of advancing to higher levels of baseball. This dream became the Ohio Warhawks.
By raising the level of play, increasing the intensity of the game, and maintaining a light-hearted team atmosphere, the Ohio Warhawks are an organization that creates an environment to help young men attain their goals of playing collegiate and professional baseball. In 21 years of existence, the Ohio Warhawks have sent over 99% of its’graduates on to the collegiate level and over 200 players have been selected in Major League Baseball's amateur draft. In these 21 years the Ohio Warhawks have never, and never will charge any player fees.
Initially the Warhawks played fewer games per season, in the Ohio area only. However in the past 19 seasons the Warhawks not only play all over the state of Ohio, but have played in tournaments in Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Tennessee, Mississippi, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, South Carolina, Canada and Mexico. This expanded playing schedule has give the Ohio Warhawks the National recognition beyond the original vision of Coach Slusher.
Today Coach Slusher's dream can be seen in each and every Ohio Warhawk's players past and present. Ron and his staffs' dedication to the Ohio Warhawks has given many young men the opportunity to improve their level of play, learn valuable life lessons. experience team camaraderie and travel the country.
