The Atlanta Blue Jays is a travel baseball team in Georgia and participates in numerous Baseball tournaments (especially Perfect Game Tournaments).

The team is led by Coach Anthony Dye.  Anthony Dye was a mediocre baseball player who never made it to the Big League, but he has been able to put together a nationally recognized program.  Those who have participated in his program understand that he is a con artist.  He promises that every player will obtain a college scholarship - which is an immediate warning.  Also - his tactics are very unethical.  He charges 100+ for tryouts and in the fall - everyplayer makes the team - but in the Spring - his selection is far more exclusive. 

He will practice for many hours and make many demands of his players/parents - yet when it comes time for Tournaments.  He will not give some players ANY playing time WHATSOEVER!!!  One family paid for airfare and hotel accomodations to Phoenix, AZ - yet their son did not play at all during the entire weekend.  As a matter of fact, his name was not even on the roster.   When it is tournament time - he will add several players to the roster - just to do well in the tournament!! 

These are players who have not paid, practiced or attended any meetings - yet they simply are given a uniform and they start, over players who have attended every practice and paid thousands of dollars!   He is a very dishonest man and his word is absolutely NOTHING.  Once the season starts - he is completely unaccesible - you can not reach him by phone, email or text and he refuses to return any phone calls.  His practices are fraudulent and his willingness to use and take advantage of people solely for money is reprehensible.

#1 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Blue Jays Are A Rip Off (Son played this past year)

AUTHOR: jcook36605 - ()

Wow, I wish I would have seen this 2500 dollars ago. That is before I wasted my money. My son went to the team excited to play. This is not a development baseball program. The coaches all coach at a highschool and they encourage players from their school to come out and play. Some baseball programs are all year round program, but Blue Jays are only for summer team traveling. They are not big on development, the coaches are there working in their on self interest which is to make their highschool players better. I was out there a month and took my son off the team. They will hold an 3.5 hour practice on weekday night and kids will be standing around the last 1.5 hours. They do a lot of facetime on the field to make it seems like they are professionals. I left there questioning all the coaches analytical skills...... No video analysis with their smart phone to correct anything they see that needed corrected. I had my son out there and they gave no input, in fact my son got sorry while playing out there cause they wasnt working on anything, just running and facetime. The teams does not even work together. The 15U team will be totally diff than the 16U team and so on.... And they are absolutely correct when they say once the season start  they dont response to phone calls and emails.... Dont wasted you money and time. I wasted money, but I didnt wasted time cause I saw where this was going after being out there for about 6 weeks. Never traving out of town with them, cuase they ask for addittional 800 for traveling fee outside the 2500 for the team. They said, we could not travel with the team if you do not pay it.... I never paid the 800 and decided to cut my lost.........Im so amaze how accurate that complaint was..........

Real Reason?

AUTHOR: Jello - ()

In one statement you admit it is a good program.  In another you say it is Mr Dye himself, which is it.  Son has been recruited by this team and so far all contact and info seems legit.  Was you complaint against the program or Mr Dye or the fact that the player mentioned didnt get play time?

Are you serious!!

AUTHOR: Baseballer - ()

You based your response to a LEGITIMATE complaint, from a visit to a website?!! Yes, we all know, in the informational age, a website is solid proof of character and validity!!!

You can never tell a baseball program's integrity by a mere website and to use one to counter a complaint speaks volumes of the author. Keep surfing and leave the comments to those of us with REAL-LIFE, FIRST-HAND experiences. Anyone who has been a part of the Anthony Dye's programs can tell you the pros and cons. The program has developed into a noteworthy one, but the man himself lacks integrity. This will be his downfall sooner or later, unless he changes, which is what we all hope for

From the previous remark sent 2 years ago, I find the information hard to believe and absolutely false.  I have gone onto the website www.atlantabluejaysbaseball.com and have seen that the program truly develops players and helps them succeed and transition to the next level.  They don't have tons of teams per age group, so it is apparent that the individual recognition and focus is paramount.  Furthermore, through the testimonial page, one can see how players and parents truly feel about the program.  Unfortunately, in baseball and in life, not all people are happy unless things are handed to them.  This program shows that you must earn it and the rewards for hard work are evident through their many draft picks.  Therefore, this program is a true testament to the fact that there are still people out there willing to help others succeed at their dreams!!!
