Coach Pete Meadows is best known regionally for a long standing professional baseball career that includes a host of accomplishments over the past 28 years.
The launching point for his career came as professional baseball’s second youngest Major League Scouting Supervisor with the Cincinnati Reds as their East Coast Scouting Supervisor in 1988.
Here he was able to rub shoulders with many of baseball’s greatest players and personalities.

Coach Meadows would also go on to two different stints as an Area Scout for the Milwaukee Brewers organization. It was also during this time the Pete Meadows Baseball Program was launched.
For nearly three decades, Coach Meadows has instructed young people in the game of baseball and life, using Christian based leadership principles as the guiding core to his player development culture. Hundreds of young men and women have come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior through his programs.
Of the thousands of athletes who have come through his program, over 300 have gone on to play college and professional baseball, with former players, many of whom are still active, having accumulating well into the tens of millions of dollars in earnings and well over one-million dollars in educational scholarships earned.
Today, despite all of Coach Meadows’ numerous other entrepreneurial pursuits, he has maintained a current streak of 348+ consecutive months in which he has conducted private or or personal training sessions with area athletes.
