Al Starr

Beehive Co-Founder Al Starr manages the 11u Scout Team.

Starr played collegiately at LBW College and at Troy University. After college, he played professionally.

For the past 25 years, he has dedicated himself to developing youth baseball players to sharpen their skills so they can position themselves to make their middle school and high school teams.

Recognizing a need for a dedicated baseball/softball training facility in the metro Auburn-Opelika area, Starr founded Beehive Baseball with partner Jed Martin in 2012. Soon, they began churning out accomplished players to high schools and colleges across the country.
