Baseball & Winning
The Ridgewater name is synonymous with two things: winning and baseball. To become a part this tradition, you are saying that you want to commit yourself to a few fundamental characteristics; hard work, dedication, passion, character and integrity.
When it comes to tradition, Ridgewater baseball is unmatched in the success on a regional and national stage. Since 1987 the Warriors have won 16 MCAC divisional titles, two MCAC championships, have been Region XIII champions six times, have been to the World Series six times, have produced 17 All-Americans and have had three players taken in the MLB draft.
The ability to attract talent that carries character is only done if it already exists in a program. Our best assets are the type of players who come through our program. We build young athletes into young men and that is not a process that happens overnight. The support that you will have in our baseball family is what we feel is a separating factor in building men and championships.
When you decide that you want to be a part of something special it does not happen overnight.
