Welcome to Raven Baseball Team Website
Fall 2018 Tryout Dates Announced
We are currently looking for a limited number of players for our fall Ravens teams. Our organization began in 2006 with one team and has expanded to include every age division from 8U through high school. The focus of our program is to build confidence and success on the baseball field by teaching the players the fundamentals of the game along with sportsmanship and teamwork. 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.
The Ravens play 2 seasons a year: a spring/summer season and a fall season. All spring/summer players in good standing are welcome to play in the fall so the upcoming tryouts are for any open spots on the fall roster. Although making the fall team does not guarantee your player a spot on the spring/summer team it will give him a clear advantage. All age divisions will move up a level in the fall. Our 12U team will be considered a New 13 and will move up to the big field. Fall season consists of one game a week, usually on Sundays, with 1 indoor and 1 outdoor practice a week. Season runs from first week in Sept through the end of October.
Tryout dates and times:
Wed, July 18: 8U-10U 5-6pm
Tues, Aug 7: 8U-10U 3-4pm
Tryout cost is $25 per player, payable at the tryout. Location is Pulis field in Franklin Lakes, 1 Vichiconti Way, Franklin Lakes. Your child should come to the tryout for the age he WILL be on April 30th of 2019.

Teel Ravens Baseball is a proven organization providing professional coaching, a positive environment and a common sense approach to the great game of baseball.
Founded by Garett Teel in 2006, Ravens Baseball offers competitive teams at all age levels. Games are played in spring, summer and fall and practices are conducted throughout the entire year. Coaching, scheduling, logistics and general baseball operations are executed internally with professionalism, keen attention to detail and focus on our player development. The Ravens organization is on the forefront of the club baseball evolution. We’ve thrived and grown in the growing industry of club sports. What sets us apart from many of them is our extremely knowledgeable, committed and reliable coaches. They convey a comprehensive but accessible approach to our players. The approach prepares players to go home a better baseball player than they were yesterday.
We look for a specific type of player. Ability is certainly a focus and ideally we have players who can do many things well on a ball field but we ask for much more. We want coachable winners and true competitors. These players perform in the clutch and pick their teammates up when it needs to happen. These are the players that win championships. They may not even be the most skilled or gifted on the roster but they get the job done with consistency, positivity, high energy and respect and make any team they play on better. We want the player that stands out and that will move on to the next level: an individual that sets themselves apart on a daily basis; whether it’s picking a teammate up, executing a sacrifice bunt with the game on the line or hitting a double off of the wall in a pressure situation. Lastly, an exceptional player is one that can bounce back from failure. Baseball is a game of failure and a player’s capacity to show resilience in the face of adversity is an immense determining factor in their success.
Work ethic, sound mechanics and a clear understanding of baseball’s fundamentals is at the core of a player’s success. Training to implement and continually reinforcing these pillars is at the crux of our mission as an organization. Through the practice of these principles our teams are always in a position to get better and stay competitive. The Ravens have assisted and will continue to assist players of all ages achieve their respective baseball goals.
