Lance Moore loved the Bulls family. He was a highly respected and influential Indiana Bulls coach from 1999 to 2003 and coached the 2001 16U squad that won a National Amateur Baseball Federation national championship. As a coach, he was quiet and reserved, but knew the game and strategy elements incredibly well.
After Lance passed away in 2003, a scholarship fund was established in his memory to help defray player fees of a deserving Bulls player. The Moore family selects the recipient each year, awarding the scholarship to an outstanding baseball prospect based upon attitude, work ethic, coachability and financial need.
Craig Moore was an important and influential member of the Indiana Bulls organization. He served on the board of directors and was a head coach from 1993 to 2003. Craig’s teams won three national championships, but it was never about wins and losses with him. His main goal, and what made him most happy, was helping student-athletes reach their full potential and earn opportunities for college or university baseball scholarships and professional playing careers. He spent countless hours talking to college coaches and pro scouts on behalf of his Bulls players.
After Craig passed away in 2004, a scholarship fund was established in his memory to help defray player fees of a deserving Bulls player. The Moore family selects the recipient each year, awarding the scholarship to an outstanding baseball prospect based upon attitude, work ethic, coachability and financial need.
