The Junior Rogues Baseball Club will be the bridge connecting the dreams of our youngest players to those of our collegiate players. I am fully committed to build a program where kids have the complete freedom, without the fear of failure, to explore their full potential and ultimately shed a bright light on the talented ballplayers we have in Southern Oregon.”
