The Maryland Warriors Baseball Club was established as an independent, competitive travel baseball organization in late 2007 in suburban Maryland. We are sanctioned by both the US Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) and the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). Based in Howard County, MD, the Warriors play in the Montgomery County (MD) Baseball Association (MCBA) and competitive tournaments nationwide.
Our charter is to provide young players with the opportunity to learn how to play baseball the right way: with heart, focus, and hustle. "The Warpath" embodies our club's guiding principles and is as much about Building Character Through Competition as it is about Playing to Win. The Warpath leads all Warriors to come to know what it takes to win on the baseball diamond and in life. Our coaching staff is committed to ensuring that each Warrior player will reap the rewards of dedication and hard work. Beyond baseball, we aim for personal growth on and off the diamond.
WE ARE THE WARRIORS...WE PLAY TO WIN!!!

MARYLAND WARRIORS 10U FINISH 2ND IN FUTURE STARS FALL TOURNAMENT
October 21, 2013
The Maryland Warriors 10U went 4-1 and finished 2nd this past weekend at the FutureStars Monster Mash/Fall Finale played at Hanshue Field in Hershey, PA. The Warriors beat the Keystone Diamondbacks and Spooky Nook Baseball Academy in pool play on Saturday and took the #3 seed into Sunday's bracket play. The Warriors drew Spooky Nook again on Sunday and played a strong game to win 3-1 in the Quarterfinal, beat the ESA Avengers 8-1 in semi-final play, and lost in the Championship Game vs. Brandywine Jays 6-1. Overall, a good performance but inconsistent play and lack of timely hitting down the stretch put the championship trophy just out of reach for our 10U.
Tournament MVPs were Jordan Peguese who homered vs. Keystone and pitched lights out the whole tournament and Branden Brown for his dominating pitching in pool play. Keep up the momentum, Warriors!
