Thank you to all who came out to AYL Night at the Rockies!! Together coaches and athletes from 15 teams combined for 381 tickets to represent our club. It was great to see the athletes walk in the parade, capture some great moments including one of our athletes catching a foul ball, and we hope that everyone had a great time!
As we launch in to playoffs, we wanted to wish everyone the best of luck!! Tremendous thank you to our coaches, athletes, parents and community support over the season. I would like to send a reminder to please continue to communicate schedules and plans with your coaches as we understand it is summer. We hope to see you at the World Series soon!
Upcoming next week on June 26th is our 5th Annual MVP Challenger Game. We are still looking for athletes to participate!! 2 teams play a 3 inning modified baseball game for athletes that battle mental/physical challenges. This game gives these athletes their chance to shine and showcase how amazing they are, as well as we will have Raptors buddy's to guide them on the diamond along the way. The event is free and will have our AYL World Series atmosphere along with pizza and trophies for the participants afterwards. Register here:

The 2019 season is now upon us, and the Raptors Baseball Board would like to extend a special congratulations to all of our Raptors Seniors as they enter into their final AYL season. Many of these athletes have been apart of our program for multiple seasons, and we could not be more proud of the young men and athletes they have become and continue to grow in to!
Special thanks to our veteran head coach Ted Gensler whom for many years has been apart of this organization as a mentor and dear friend to the board. It is through his patience, commitment, postivity, and altruistic support to this organization and athletes through each season, that we are truly honored to have him coach with us in his final season. We are ever grateful for his commitment and passion to the organization and these families throughout his coaching journey.
We would also like to thank Dave Franz. Dave joined our organization at 12U making the leap from recreation baseball with a group of athletes. Each season we watched Dave grow as a head coach through his dedication, perseverance, and foster each season of athletes with the same passion he brought since day 1. We truly appreciate his drive, commitment and flexibility to lead up athletes each of these seasons at various levels exemplifying that true passion as a coach.
Each of you will truly be missed around the diamond representing Raptors Baseball and thank you again for volunteering your time for these athletes.
We are also very grateful to have our newest athletes join our club in their final season to share in the experience of Raptors Baseball. We wish each of you the very best for a successful season while taking with you all that your parents, coaches, and teammates have taught you over the years and help prepare you for the next phase in your baseball goals.
