The baseball program at Athens Christian School offers student-athletes the opportunity to compete at the highest level of High School baseball in Northeast Georgia. The game of baseball will prepare these young men the value of teamwork, accountability and dependability.
In the fall of 2013, Allen Osborne became the head coach of the baseball program here at Athens Christian. Coach Osborne came to ACS after spending 16 years coaching at the collegiate level with stops at the University of Georgia, Wingate University, the University of Memphis and East Carolina University. Coach Osborne's assistant coaches for the Varsity team are: Jeff Griffith, Jake Westbrook, Austin Turgeon, and Matt Jones.
The facility at ACS is one of the best in the state of Georgia. In 2013, the playing surface was replaced with new drainage, irrigation and sod. This has made the playing surface the nicest in the area. Along with the diamond renovation, the hitting facility was completely revamped. Installed in 2014, the facility consists of 2 batting tunnels that are 55 feet long, 17 feet wide and 12 feet tall. Wooden, permanent mounds are also inside the facility. The cages are heated and have 5 roll-up garage doors for warmer days.
During the summer of 2018, the baseball complex received a major facelift. A new brick backstop (with new netting), brick dugouts and a 4000 square foot clubhouse will take this complex to the next level. The clubhouse will contain coaches offices, coaches conference room, coaches locker room and showers, players locker room, wooden players lockers, team meeting room and laundry facilities. This will be an amazing addition to our campus and athletics facilities.
In the past 5 seasons, the Eagles have won 83 games, been to the GHSA State Playoffs 4 times, the Sweet Sixteen one time and the Final Four in 2017. Eleven former Eagle baseball players have gone on to continue their education in college while playing baseball.
