For the love of the game



We are here to teach, develop, mentor, and most of all spread the love of the game.

Our goal is to teach baseball players of all ages the process it takes to stay healthy season to season while enjoying every minute of it.

Our Story

My name is Justin Dowdy. I played 13 seasons in the minor leagues while topping out in Triple A. I have been in baseball since I was 4 years old and I still love the game as much today as I did almost 30 years ago.  I believe in hard work and no excuses. I started Stitches to give the game back to the ball players. I wanted to provide a place where baseball players could come to just get their work in while having the opportunity to get quality high level information and instruction. I am here for all ball players that want to put in work or just enjoy this great game. Where you play and who you play for doesn't matter
