2017-18 Baseball Memories
The Rancho Mirage Baseball Program's mission is to implement a program that fosters long-term development of character, discipline, sportsmanship, community, and work ethic. With these goals in mind, we hope to create better athletes, but more importantly, better young men and students in the process. Given the opportunity, the players will grow both mentally and physically, allowing each player to find success on and off the field.
About the Program:
RMHS Baseball will be starting its 5th Varsity season (6th Season Overall), and will be carrying a Varsity, Junior Varsity, and a Freshman team. Last year the Rattlers finished 1 game from back to back league titles in the De Anza League. This season they will be very young (Only 2 Starting Seniors returning) and expecting to rely on younger players from Juniors to Freshman to compete in their new league, the DESERT EMPIRE League. Prior to the start of this season, we have completed our renovation of the baseball diamond, by moving both hose couplers on Varsity and JV Fields to behind the mound, to allow for better access and ease of use. Also during this off-season, we have added a unique "RM" logo to behind our home plate area that brings our Varsity Field to an unmatched level of quality. See the information below for more information about the coaching staff, camps, fundraising and game schedules for all levels.
