In 2009, Matt Price was 23 and had recently moved to Austin when a friend asked him to help coach the baseball team at Reagan High School, an academically failing school where Price found discouraged players and a ballfield full of weeds and potholes.
The baseball team told him they had nowhere to play during the summer, so Price and a friend organized a summer team. In the process, they built relationships with the players—many of whom had no fathers at home—and talked about the gospel.
