Our story began with a dream.
Diamond Dreams is a tribute to my dad who passed away when I was just 16. My best memories are of playing catch with him in our driveway. Like me, my dad lost his father at a young age. As a result, baseball became more than a sport to him; it became a way to escape the harsh realities of growing up in poverty. In fact, back when every little boy wanted to grow up to be a big leaguer, my dad had a dream - a diamond dream - of playing professional baseball. That dream ended somewhere in the Midwest when he collided with a fence while chasing down a fly ball. The injury led him back home, and eventually, to playing catch with me in our driveway. So for my dad, and for all the dads and moms who create lasting memories with their sons and daughters just by playing catch... welcome to Diamond Dreams. I think you will find it to be a very special place. Randy McGill, Owner
