Welcome to R Nation!!

R Nation Baseball Club is an independent organization born from an independent spirit.  The Texas Raiders baseball teams adhere to this independent spirit and our mission, first and foremost, is the development and nurturing of youth baseball players.

3 guiding principals

  • Maximum baseball development and experience
  • Quality coaches and coaching
  • ONE team focus 

Founded in the Fall 2012 on the belief that participation in select baseball needed to be re-focused on both the responsible and reasonable development of youth baseball players.  We hold to the belief that our responsibility to you—players and families—is a nurturing and rewarding baseball experience.

This begins with quality coaches and coaching.  Texas Raiders coaches have exceptional pedigree having played at the collegiate and professional levels and have extensive background coaching youth baseball.  Coaches are committed to responsibly teaching and motivating players to be the very best they can be and to the development of highly competitive teams at all levels of competitive select youth baseball.  Coaches emphasize committed individual development and the discipline needed to improve both as a player and person, positive and nurturing team atmosphere, and respect for the game.

Unlike "big-box" organizations, we are ONE team and we will have one team in each age group.  We believe this approach assures each player will receive the same and equal coaching and development across the entire organization.  The proper pathway for the committed player's development is to have consistency over time.  Teams stay together and stay with the same Head Coach.

We believe also that competitive select baseball has become overly costly and we will keep participation on a Texas Raiders team at a modest, reasonable level.

Our goal is to help each and every Texas Raiders’ player reach their goals!!  As a player on a Texas Raiders team, you will be a part of a very special organization that promises to field competitive select baseball teams and nurturing the very best from each individual.
