The Rooks program was established and is designed to develop and instruct players who are looking to play town travel level baseball. We want every boy to have the opportunity to play and be successful on the baseball field. The Rooks players get the same high caliber instruction as our Ravens players and the same high caliber coaching. Our philosophy is to give young players good information with good coaching and provide the players the opportunity to execute on the baseball field.
All Ravens and Rooks teams play a combined spring and summer league schedule. They will practice two times a week from March through July-once at the Wyckoff baseball school with a concentration on hitting and once outdoors with a concentration on defense and base running. All of our coaches have been professionally trained by Garett Teel, who played and coached for the Los Angeles Dodgers and has developed a proven method of training. Many of his former clients have gone on to play on college and professional teams.
