Baseball is a unique sport in that failure is to be expected – even the best players fail early and often. Baseball players spend most of their time reacting to different situations - the sport practically demands that you gain comfort in being uncomfortable. Whether we win or lose, we are consistently challenging our discomfort and we learn to rely on our teammates to overcome common obstacles. We want to be the ones celebrating after a game, but more than anything else, if we embrace the challenge of honorably competing at a high level - without fear of failure – your experience and friendships will remain with you for a lifetime.

Max began coaching at Prep as an assistant to Washington State Hall of Fame Coach Ed Paulter for nine years. Max was named Head Varsity Coach in 2013 and just completed his fifth season at the helm of Seattle Prep Baseball.
Ethan Cantrell doesn't hold the title of ace on the Seattle Prep baseball team, but his numbers sure do suggest that he can command the game and the zone. Over 23.1 innings Cantrell walked just one batter, gave up three earned runs, and struck out fifteen.
Jacob Terao '17 is one of the few people blessed with the extreme amount of athleticism, work ethic, and passion necessary to compete in Division I baseball. He began his career at the age of four years old with the impressive goal to: "get out of the house and get some exercise."
