About Us

925 Sports’ mission is to empower youth to become exemplary leaders who positively impact their community. Lessons learned from the game of baseball transfer into any career. Whether you are an educator, pharmacist, or musician, your success correlates to the lessons learned through failure.

Baseball players must continually evaluate their failures, develop a plan for improvement, and be disciplined in executing the plan. Learning these disciplines will empower students and strengthen the well-being of families, which will propel our community toward excellence. 925 Sports oversees the Kentucky Diamonds Baseball, Mid-South Monarchs Baseball, and Iron Sharpens Iron Baseball Institute.

The Kentucky Diamonds serve as our developmental program introducing youth to travel baseball. Players are provided professional instruction and compete in leagues
and tournaments throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana. The Kentucky Diamonds have earned seven (7) tournament championships, finished runner-up six (6) times, and also have six (6) semi-finals appearances since 2016.
Mid-South Monarchs consist of select baseball players throughout the United States alongside our core players from Kentuckiana. The Monarch’s purpose is to bridge the gap between potential and opportunity. These select players are exposed to elite competition at tournaments played across America. Our 2021 inaugural season was a huge success! The Monarchs won the Perfect Game Southwest Virginia State Tournament and were runner-up at Perfect Game Coastal Super Regional NIT in Charlotte, NC, while only playing in four events. In 2022 the Monarchs played a full summer schedule, earning 3rd place at the USSSA World Series, and 5th place at the USSSA Kentucky State Tournament.  The roster included players from Kentucky, Michigan, and West Virginia.
