Richmond City Baseball Association is seeking dynamic, responsible role-models to provide instruction and coaching under the direction of 18U College Prep Head Coach Raul Verde Rios.As part of RCBA’s initiative to place a greater emphasis on player development and to provide more opportunities for players wishing to play in a “rep” program.

In addition a more performance-oriented AAA program will provide a greater developmental platform for third-year players that will aid in their transition from 18U AAA to potentially College and/or Junior Men’s.
