KC Bullets is one of the best showcase programs in the Midwest, season after season. Because Dale spends time recruiting well-rounded players, he consistently produces successful teams. Dale is not in this business to make money – he is in it to help high school baseball players reach their goals. Because he does this for all of the right reasons, his teams are successful.
We also want to thank Cindy for her commitment to the Bullets. Cindy wants each of Dale’s players to succeed. The Reed’s son has not played for the Bullets for years. But, Dale and Cindy treat this team like their family. To hear Cindy talk about the players, you would think each of them is her son.
Thanks for a wonderful 4 years.
Here are a few examples of the differences that Dale provides:
- Other coaches may help send out a letter or email to college coaches for your son, but Dale knows these college coaches personally and has them on speed dial whether it is a pro scout, D1/D2/4 year school, or JUCO. He works with the college coaches and arranges for them to come see your son, then receives feedback from the coaches after their visit to share with the player and parents.
- One aspect that really impressed us was that Dale stays in contact with his former players. Dale, and his very supportive wife Cindy, often take former players out to dinner when they are in their town, or they travel to watch them play. He also continues to help them with recruiting, if needed, even after they begin college.
- He has the highest of principles and demands the same from his players. He recruits talented players and is very competitive…his team’s records reflect that. However, Dale would be the first to tell you that it is more about getting the players exposure than it is winning.
You can’t go wrong with choosing the Bullets program and we would be happy to discuss it further with any parent who is interested.
Our son Noah had the opportunity to play for Coach Dale Reed and the 18U KC Bullets for three seasons, two summers and one fall. From our perspective as parents, Dale runs a quality college showcase program, one of the best in the area to help prepare players to get to the next level. He recruits highly talented players from a very large area in the Midwest. Dale’s honesty and integrity with his players is second to none. His knowledge of the game of baseball allows him to motivate and evaluate players to be the best they can be. Dale’s expertise in coaching is his true ability to properly evaluate players skillset and match those skills with the right recruiters in the right collegiate programs. Dale fully understands the college recruiting process and has a great relationship with a lot of college recruiters and coaching staffs. He also knows the best college showcases to attend to give his players the necessary exposure to get to the next level.
From the beginning Dale was very honest and precise in his evaluation of Noah. Dale was always open for discussion and anytime welcomed questions. For weeks he told us that Noah had a lot of natural talent and could probably play at the Division-II level, but he always added that Noah was “potentially” a Division-I player. Dale seemed to frequently use that word “potential”. He said everything depends on how much work Noah was willing to put in to get better. Dale sees potential in every player to become the best they can be on and off the field.
Early in Noah’s first summer as a Bullet, several D-2 and NAIA schools, along with a few JUCOs were already showing some interest, but D-1 University of Central Arkansas (UCA) was contacting him with
offers to come play. By the fall of Noah’s senior year of high school, he had committed to UCA and signed his National Letter of Intent that November.
We feel that Noah’s opportunity to play with Dale and the KC Bullets was the sparkplug necessary to help lead him to a great collegiate program that will promote the fulfillment of his dreams. The best is yet to come.
Thank you to Coach Dale Reed for giving our son Noah three great seasons of top-notch baseball.
The practices were organized, run efficiently, and throughout the season the improvement in each player was noticeable. Several things about Dale Reed’s program impressed us, but one thing that was obvious was Dale’s passion for developing and exposing players to college coaches. Dale has a gift of helping each player understand their abilities, opportunities for improvement, and potential. He is honest with kids about their skill level and never tries to mislead them. Because of this college coaches respect Dale’s opinion and travel to watch the talented Bullet’s play almost every weekend. His very impressive relationship with college coaches gives the players a great opportunity for exposure at all levels. When the recruiting process starts Dale is there to help the players and their parents walk through it. He helped expose Trent to numerous colleges in the fall and was always available to answer questions after his visits. The recruiting process can be overwhelming so having that support was tremendous. Thank you Dale for all the long hours and hard work you put into running a class program.
Trent is excited about the next steps in his baseball career and you had a lot to do with helping him get there.
