TERRIER BASEBALL MISSION
Redlands High School baseball is all about the "pursuit of excellence." It is a pursuit that will challenge and reward you. Playing baseball at Redlands High School is a privilege and an honor. We will provide you with an opportunity to learn, compete, develop, and be challenged. The main goal of our program will be to create an environment that is conducive to success. To do this, we will utilize all resources with the rules set by our team, league and the school district. We will strive to compete for the Citrus Belt League Championship and the CIF Section Championship.
The baseball program will assist the student/athlete in realizing his potential. We will help, in any way possible, those who will be continuing on to college and professional baseball. We will also help to recognize opportunities for those team members who choose to explore other avenues. We will strive to insure success for all those dedicated to the program.
The Terriers first and foremost represent themselves, their parents, the school, the team, and we will conduct ourselves with professionalism and integrity at all times. As a coaching staff, we will provide an honest and fair environment for the players.
