For decades, Pendleton baseball has built a tradition of excellence. We play at the best setting for a baseball field in the entire state: Bob White. We have played for state championships, multiple semi-finals, and have won 20 league titles. There have been countless players that have excelled at the next level. Being a Buckaroo is more than just putting on the uniform and taking the field. There is an expectation of effort, dedication, and playing the game the right way: the "Buckaroo Way".
For years, coaches and players have done the little things necessary that have successful seasons. This system has been in place for decades. We have named this the "Buckaroo Way." It is a privilege to wear the green and gold. Every athlete is aware that they represent something bigger than themselves. With this privilege comes responsibility to one's self, family, friends, teammates, and community.
Tradition is more than just winning. It is a process, a belief, a system that is developed over days, years, and decades. Previous coaches, athletes, and the community expect Pendleton baseball to compete year after year. A current athlete should expect to leave Pendleton baseball a better program than when they stepped into it.
The "Buckaroo Way" is implemented at a young age and woven through a players little league, Babe Ruth, and travel ball teams. The youth programs play a huge part in the success of high school athletics. Not only baseball, but all sports. Maintaining a system throughout the growth period is key to establishing a successful program. As high school coaches, we will work closely with the different leagues and teams to help aide in this key development period. Working together will continue to produce the next, great, Buckaroos. The entire process becomes: the "Buckaroo Way."
