Defenders 14u National Baseball Team

Who are the Defenders?

One of the categories in our 80 in 80 campaign is organizations nominated by our employees. One of our longest tenured employees of 15 years, Jeff Houran, nominated the Defenders to be recognized. They are a 14u National Baseball Team that plays for the O’Fallon Community Athletics Club (OCAC). The OCAC is a non-profit organization that was started in 1960 and is completely made up of volunteers. “14u” stands for 14 years of age and “under league.” This means the boys that play on the team have to be 14 years old as of January 1, 2019.
