A brief history ...
Help us recover our history. If you have ANY information about the founding and/or continuation of our former leagues, please send email to email@example.com.
Selected data from the Pasadena Baseball Club for each season starting 2003 is located under Archives
on the left menu.
Our Club formally adopted the name Pasadena Baseball Club in 2002 with the legal merger of four youth baseball groups in our community of Pasadena. The Riviera Little League
began operation in 1953, one of the oldest organized youth baseball organizations in Maryland. With increasing population around George Fox Middle school, the Havenwood Little League
was started in 1972 and played games at Havenwood Park and George Fox. Both leagues were affiliated with Little League (R) baseball and competed against each other in Little League tournaments.
In 1975, the Pasadena Clinic League
was started initially to provide non-competitive Tee ball, but later expanded to Coach Pitch and Kid Pitch divisions. The Riviera Clinic League
was started in 2001 as a Tee Ball feeder league for the Riviera Little League. Neither clinic leagues were affiliated with national organizations.
All four leagues were still in continuous operation in the fall of 2002 when the Boards of each organization met to discuss improving youth baseball in our community. After numerous meetings and lengthy discussions, it was decided to merge all four leagues into a single organization under a new name, the Pasadena Baseball Club
. The memberships of all four organizations approved the merger, with the PBC Board of Directors to be composed of an equal number of voting members from the four prior leagues for the first two years.
The first season under the name of Pasadena Baseball Club was the spring season of 2003, and the PBC has been operating Clinic, Intramural, and Travel teams each spring and fall season since then. Since then, the Club has seen the completion of the following capital projects:
Replaced clinic backstops and bench areas at Riviera Community Park fields (RC #3,4)
New 8U backstop and bench areas at Havenwood Park (HP #4)
New batting cage and pitching machine at Havenwood Park
New concessions and restroom building addition at Havenwood Park
Replaced backstop and bench areas at Poplar Ridge Park (PR #1-3)
Replaced backstop and bench areas at Riviera Beach Elementary School (RB #1,2)
Replaced backstop and bench areas at St Jane School (RB #3)
New covered benches at Havenwood Park (HP #3,4)
New block house improvements at Havenwood Park
New fence toppers and screens at Havenwood Park
New 90' field at George Fox Middle School (GF #2)
New scoreboard at Havenwood Park (HP #2)
We are working hard with AA County Department of Rec & Parks to try and build a consolidated complex of fields for our Club. Mostly we need the County to know we are here and paying attention to what our community is getting, and what other communities are getting. To date, R&P funding for improvements in our locations have been routine maintenance or replacement of existing worn-out facilites (e.g. backstop fencing). You can help your community get the attention it deserves - contact someone on the board to find out how.
