The St. Louis Royales ball club has been around for many years.  Head Coach Mike Bukowsky has led many St. Louis Royales teams to very successful finishes. 

Mike likes to start teams when the boys are young (and don't have too many bad habits!) and teaches them the fundamentals of the game.  He teaches the basics - hitting, throwing, pitching and having a good attitude.  Mike knows you can't have a good team without mastering the fundamentals.  In fact, when you ask Mike what is important for his team he will tell you, "To have fun.  To get better.  To win."  Mike also emphasizes good sportsmanship.

Mike's goal is to take a group of young men to their fullest potential and get them on their high school baseball team.  That's when Mike will start building his new team of recruits and continue the legacy of the St. Louis Royales.

Mike took his last team (13 AA, 2006) to a #1 Missouri Power Rating by the USSSA.  For the link to the stats, click here:  http://www.usssa.com/sports/Rank2.asp?State=43&ClassID=42&SeasonID=10&RankSystem=0.  This same team also earned a #5 National Power Rating by the USSSA -  http://www.usssa.com/sports/Rank2.asp?State=0&ClassID=42&SeasonID=10&RankSystem=0

A previous St. Louis Royales Team started as an 8U Team in 2008 and finished 55-2 for the 2008 season.  They won 6 tournaments and the Fenton and All-Star Leagues that season.


Mike currently has 2 assistant coaches:  Steve and Brian.  Both of these individuals also work with the team and bring a lot of experience and leadership to the dynamics of the team.  Steve and Brian are passionate about baseball and teaching skills that develop the confidence of these young boys.
Win or lose, the St. Louis Royales are a great team!
