Local Baseball Coach and Veteran Named Head Coach for US Military WarDogs National Team


The WarDogs Military Baseball team is making significant strides in raising money and awareness for veterans dealing with PTSD, suicide, unemployment, and disability. The team, composed of the military’s top ball players, travels across the U.S. playing against Major, Minor, and Collegiate teams.

The WarDogs Farm System includes current and prior service members participating in various Men’s Wood Bat Baseball leagues. These teams are built around military installations, giving local teams an opportunity to compete for spots on the U.S. WarDogs Tour team, Tournament team, and special events.

A notable figure in this initiative is Casey Lee, a dedicated coach and veteran of the United States Army with 11 years of service. Since leaving the Army in 2020, Lee has found a new passion in coaching baseball. He serves as an assistant coach at Lassen College, head coach for the Susanville Renegades, and President of Susanville Little League. Through his work with WarDogs, Lee uses baseball as a means for healing and giving back to the community, drawing on his personal experiences with PTSD.

Casey stated two most proud aspects of his life have finally come together. Baseball & the Army. He is thankful for everyone who has had a hand in this journey. The person he thanks the most is his fiance, Nicomi Reed. He added that Nicomi has been his rock and my biggest supporter throughout this coaching journey.

The WarDogs Military Baseball team continues to honor our nation’s heroes, demonstrating there are many ways to be a hero both on and off the field. Their efforts inspire communities to support and come together for those who have served. Visit the US Military Wardogs website or Facebook for a complete schedule and game updates.
