"I found out about LCC when Coach Kelly Smith was coaching baseball in The Netherlands. I would recommend LCC to a friend. I had a great time here, good and nice teachers and there is always a way to get help. I am going to Hawaii Pacific University next fall, where I intend to play baseball again."
