Scott Mayo and Matt Settle have known each other for over twenty years, playing high school baseball against each other. Settle played for Stockbridge High School and Mayo for Union Grove. Both men went on to play college baseball.
Over the years, the two Henry County men always envisioned going into business together in some way, but it wasn’t until a year ago that the right opportunity presented itself.
As Mayo and Settle were looking for a business venture to take on, an indoor baseball facility became available. Within months, they were signing a lease for the spot, and Team Titans Training Facility became a reality.
Titans baseball has teams from 5U to 15U. The facility also offers memberships to all ages.
At Team Titans, Mayo and Settle have created a place that offers much more than baseball lessons; they want to send a good message to kids and parents that is faith-based, that discipline and working hard are a big part of why Team Titans exists. For Mayo and Settle, it is growth in character as well as growth on the field.
To that point, Team Titans has partnered with Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) to hold summer baseball camps as well as provide “Bible & Baseball” – a baseball-themed Bible study with baseball instruction.
As far as what is in store for the future, Mayo and Settle want to make sure they have a good foundation before they expand. There is a need for more individuals who want to not only coach but be a good Christian example.
Settle now works full-time at the Titans, handling financials, coaching, and giving private lessons, from pitching to batting. He is married to his wife, Rachel.
Mayo can also be found at the facility most days. He coaches for two of the teams and also gives lessons while still working as District Manager at Ecolab. His wife, Mallory, handles scheduling. They have four children together, who can be found at the training facility with their parents.
