Rainiers Select Teams Looking for Players

We're looking for a few players!!

Our Rainiers teams are in full swing. All seven of our teams are currently in their professionally-instructed winter training programs and so far are looking really good. The training program continues into March, and it will be exciting to see the kids play.

We're looking for a few additional players in 13U, 14U, 15U and 18U. While not many spots are open, these teams are seeking committed advanced players, especially catchers and pitchers.

Our select program is as stated – Select. So, unlike our NSB regular baseball program, which is recreational, in this program each player is selected by the team coach. It is more expensive but much less than other select programs. It requires a certain commitment but the players will gain so much and have a lot of fun if and when selected to a team.

If your player may be interested in trying out, please contact Kevin Parker at: kmparker560@comcast.net
