The Bombers Baseball Club I looking for the following:

The Bombers Baseball Club is looking for Fall Ball 2019 Players for 13, 14u, 15u, 16u, teams.  In addition, we are also looking for 2020 16u and 17u players for our college showcase teams.  All teams are managed by professionals (no fathers manage our teams).  Players need to be serious about the game and dedicated to getting better.  Our 16u and 17u showcase teams are designed to help players get recruited for roster spots on college teams.  Over the last 6 years, we have helped over 40 players get scholarships and roster spots on DIII, DII and DI college teams.


We are a 501-C3 non-profit and we do NOT build a profit margin into our player fees.  We have consistently delivered high-quality training, instruction and competitive baseball for less than half of what other programs charge.  If interested, please email founder and president Steve Riccio at sriccio@crotonbombers.com

2018 – Bombers Parent/Player Recruiting Info Meeting

2018 – Bombers Parent/Player Recruiting info meeting
Time/date: 7pm on Tuesday 11/27/18
Location: The Croton Library located at 171 Cleveland Drive Croton on Hudson NY 10520

The purpose of this meeting is to provide important information to parents and players about the college baseball recruiting process from our Bombers/showcase team perspective. In addition to our Bombers management and coaches who will be speaking at the meeting, we have invited current D-I, D-II and D-III recruiting coaches to explain the recruiting process from their perspective as well. This will give everyone an excellent idea on how the process works; what you should expect; and what the player needs to do to maximize his chances to get recruited. All 16u and 17u parents and players should plan on attending this.
This will mostly be an interactive meeting so we want all parents and players to come armed with any questions or comments they may have regarding the college recruiting process.
