The Cincinnati Spikes is a Christian faith-based organization.
The organization aims to equip and encourage athletes to glorify Christ on the field, in the community, and around the world.
Over the years the Spikes have completed domestic and international mission trips, using the gospel and the game of baseball. The Spikes partner with various organizations to help serve others and to share the love of Jesus. International and domestic trips are carefully selected to bless our missionary partners and their communities while helping players learn a new way of thinking about the world.
Additionally, the Cincinnati Spikes are committed to serving others in the Cincinnati area. Historically the Spikes have served at Matthew 25 Ministries, alongside the Lord’s Gym with baseball clinics and donated gently used equipment. The Spikes are not defined by baseball, but play baseball to glorify God.

During the Midwest Elite Showcase tournament that was held in June, the 16u Cincinnati Spikes team partnered with the Oklahoma City Ambassadors to host a free baseball clinic for the community. The Oklahoma City Ambassadors is a faith-based travel baseball organization that makes a point to share the Gospel with other baseball teams that it plays against and communities that it visits. One of the ways the team does this is by hosting free baseball clinics. The clinic held at Legacy Field had a total of 120 kids ages 8-12 who participated
in various stations that included hitting, fielding, throwing, and base running. Several 16u Cincinnati Spikes players volunteered their time to assist with running the clinic. It was encouraging to see the interaction among the players for the Oklahoma City Ambassadors, Cincinnati Spikes, and the kids attending the clinic. Sharing the knowledge that the players have with the kids attending is a great way to build relationships and to open the door to sharing the Gospel. At the end of the clinic, players from the Oklahoma City Ambassadors team shared about the history of their organization and also shared the Gospel. Several kids who attended the camp showed interest in learning more about Jesus and were connected with representatives from Grace Chapel located in Mason.
