June 20, 2016
We started Friday off playing very well against the Charlotte Megastars. The boys jumped out to a lead and held on to win 6-1. Friday evening we faced the Tidewater Drillers in a game that just wasn't going our way from the start. The boys would try to battle back but we gave the Drillers too much of a lead and lost 11-5.
Our game on Saturday was against Akadema. The game would go back and forth but the Rawlings Guys would take the lead only to lose it big. The guys lost the game 12-7.
On Sunday, we faced the Dirtbags 15 - Haynes in a close game that ended in an awesome play. The game started with Rawlings down 5-1 early but the guys would battle back to take the lead. Then in the bottom of the 7th, the Dirtbags would load the bases up with no out. Amazingly the guys would first have a grounder to short stop with the infiled in and take the force out at home. Then the next batter would hit a line drive to Zach again, who caught the ball on a diving play and doubled them out with a throw to Jacob at second. Rawlings would win 8-7.

June 14, 2016
Rawlings Prospects NC 2019 will played in the Impact Wood Bat Championship 16U division this weekend. On Saturday, they faced the Dirtbags 15's - Jenkins at Elon. The guys jumped out to a lead and kept going to win the game 8-0. Then on Sunday, we started the day facing the Dirtbags 16's - Crumpler at Westchester Country Day School. We started well and jumped out to a 3-1 lead only to lose the lead and then the game by an 8-4 score. Our second game Sunday was right after the first, still at Westchester facing the Carolina Rockies 2019 - Gray. We jumped out quick and kept going taking out our frustrations from the loss. Everyone batted in the first inning and before you knew it the game was out of hand. In the end the score was 18-2 Rawlings. Great weekend and the boys are developing well. We are still making adjustments and the stats are in for your viewing.
Impact Hickory/Boone Tournament - Guys play great and go 2-1 to start season
June 6, 2016
In the first game Saturday, Rawlings faced Swarm Baseball 16U. In a close game that went back and forth, Rawlings would lose the game 5-4. The guys played awesome and with it being our first game together and playing a team an age group up, we learned a lot about our team. Then Sunday morning at 8:00am, we faced FBI Fungo 15U at Appalachian State. In a pitching duel, Fungo would take the lead 1-0 only to lose it in the bottom half of the inning 3-1. From there, Ryan would continue to shut them down and Rawlings won 3-1. Sunday afternoon, we faced the Dirtbags 14 - Woodell. Once again, the pitching was great and the defense was awesome. The boys would score the runs and we won 8-1. 3 great games to start and now we know what we have so the coaches are really looking forward to a great summer.

Rockets have blast at Cooperstown!!!!!!
June 28, 2013
The North Raleigh Rockets have played some unbelievable baseball this week. They went 5-1 in pool play and allowed only 4.83 runs per game over 6 games. With that, they earned the 16 seed out of 104 teams at Cooperstown this week. The boys finished pool play tied for 14th but ended up getting the 16th seed after the tie break. The boys faced some great competition with a few major level and a couple AAA level teams.
Going into the Bracket play the boys earned a few byes which allowed them a break until 4:00pm which then turned into 3:30pm to beat the rain moving in. Once again the competition was tough with nobody wanting to give up and be forced to watch the games remaining. The guys would win the first one to get into the final round of 24 teams. Then lose the second in a very close game that was a battle against a very good team from the Toronto area.
The eventual champions were the Warriors Baseball Club of Michigan. If you don't remember that team, we lost to them 3-2 and 7-2 early this year. We have played extremely well with some of the best from all over the country and Canada this year. The guys are continuing to get better and after Cooperstown, it has been great to see a group of 11 players who have played with each other for years, develop into a great team. Yes, I will say it no guest players for a reason. Just Rockets!!!!!!!
The guys finished 6-2 over the week, they had a ton of kids compliment them and tell them how good they were but the greatest thing was how the other coaches on several occasions said they played the game with class and character and showed great sportsmanship on the field.
It has been an awesome week and the boys have loved hearing the crowd cheering for them. They definitely got to "Live the Dream". Thanks Rocket fans!! you guys are the greatest. One more left this summer and there is a chance we may switch to another location with Nations World Series at Rocky Mount being played the same weekend as AAU. AAU only has 2 other teams in our group, where Nations has 10. As Always ----GO ROCKETS!!!!!!!
