The goals of the Blue Sox are simple: Winning championships; developing players, and building lifelong friendships among their players, fans, and supporters. Once a player plays for the Blue Sox, he becomes a part of the organization.
The Blue Sox formula for success is straightforward. We combine top notch current college players with experienced former college and professional players. The collegians learn how to play the game from the veterans and the veterans are energized and motivated by the successes of the college players.
“We provide top notch baseball for our fans and we don’t consider any season a success unless we are in contention for the title”, says Blue Sox manager Rick DeAngelis. “As good as the college players are when they arrive in Lexington at the beginning of each summer, they all leave as better players with improved skills and as better young men. There is always a place for a quality baseball player on the Blue Sox roster.
