A Message From Coach DeFendis
The player is Number 1. Since the Richmond County Baseball Club was established in 2004, we have always had the players' best interest in mind. RCBC is committed to serving the youth of Staten Island and the tri-state area.
Richmond County establishes a solid coach-player baseball relationship, and a partnership with the family. The goal is to develop your son into a fine baseball player who can get to the next level whether it be on a high school team or a college roster. All of our players receive the finest instruction baseball has to offer.
The RCBC facility is a superb Youth Sports Complex that rivals any in the tri-state area. Our players have full-access at the complex to improve their baseball skills. The facility has three batting cages, four bullpens, five well manicured fields, and a player-friendly clubhouse. Our press-box is a perfect spot for college coaches and major league scouts to gather and evaluate our players' baseball ability.
Richmond County teams travel to play the best competition available including the East Cobb Tournament in Georgia, along with the Don Mattingly World Series and the Perfect Game National Tournament. RCBC also invites top sandlot teams to compete at high-level tournaments at our Youth Complex.
RCBC has a growing list of players who have reached the college & professional levels through baseball scholarships. Our younger divisions, which we consider our farm system, are developing players to succeed in making their high school teams.
We are proud of the players that have come through RCBC and we are grateful to the parents who put their baseball trust in our organization. Our organization has a goal of making baseball affordable to players so they get the opportunity to improve their skills and accelerate their progress.
