Welcome to the Home of Plainfield Raiders Baseball

Plainfield Raiders Baseball is an organization established in 2002 to provide a high level of competition and coaching.It is our goal to have fun in a competitive environment playing the game of baseball. We strive to prepare our players to compete @ the high school level and beyond.  Much of the local high schools playoff success over the years can be directly correlated to former Plainfield Raiders attending their schools.We feel that by providing the opportunity to compete at a high level now, the developmental years, we will better prepare our players to compete at a higher level later.  We will emphasis playing the game the right way, having a team first attitude, with a focus on positive behaviors on and off the field. 





2019 Spring/Summer 11U Try Out Information 


Early tryouts for a great opportunity for your son to play 11U travel baseball for the 2019 spring/summer season. This is a 2nd year team that won the Game Day USA Midlothian tournament in it's first season. The team has a 9 month off season training that includes workouts @ the Bulls/Sox Academy.  Each player also receives a personalized wood bat to help build strength.This team is planning on playing in a 2018 fall travel league.

100% of collected money goes directly into the teams. This allows the Raiders to run an extensive program for much less than for profit academy teams and local teams that have to fund a larger organization.
