Countdown to first pitch
The Colorado Springs CageRats Baseball Club is a summer collegiate baseball team.
We are members of the Rocky Mountain Baseball League (RMBL), which was founded in 1999. The RMBL is considered the premier summer collegiate baseball league in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region.
The RMBL consists of 8 teams:
- Colorado Springs CageRats (Colorado Springs, CO)
- Gameday Angels (Parker, CO)
- Denver Cougars (Denver, CO)
- Ft Collins Foxes (Ft Collins, CO)
- Superior Rough Riders (Superior, CO)
- Hays Larks (Hays, KS)
- Dodge City Athletics (Dodge City, KS)
- Liberal BeeJays (Liberal, KS)
The RMBL anticipates adding two more teams starting in 2023; which will make our league extremely strong, attractive to top players, and nationally competitive.
The RMBL receives 2 to 3 bids to the National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series each year with Hays, Liberal and the Denver Cougars all representing the RMBL in 2022.
Hays made the final game before succumbing to national power the Santa Barbara, CA Foresters.
The Colorado Springs CageRats college club is a 501(c)3, not for profit entity of the Children of Destiny Foundation.
VISION AND MISSION
Our VISION is for the Colorado Springs CageRats to be the premier summer collegiate baseball program in the Rocky Mountain Region.
Our MISSION is to provide current college baseball players from around the United States an opportunity to develop their baseball skills in the most competitive environment possible as part of the CageRats and RMBL.
Private Donors and Sponsors
Most of the premier summer collegiate baseball programs do not have player fees because of generous sponsorships and donations that help defray the costs of baseball operations (uniforms, travel, equipment, etc.).
We are looking for individual, group, and corporate donors that are interested in helping these young athletes pursue their dream of playing baseball at the highest levels. Your generous supports allows us continue bringing in top talent without charging a player fee.
Host Family Program
We need families that are willing to open their homes to a college baseball player, or two, or more, from late-May through late-July.
A host family provides living arrangements that includes a bedroom & bathroom, access to laundry, and provides as many meals as they are willing to feed them!
A hosting experience is a lot of fun and builds great relationships for both the host and the player!
The players are great role models for younger children, you build long-lasting relationships with young athletes, and you get to help a young player pursue their dream of playing baseball!
