Thank you for taking the time to check us out. The 2017-18 school year will be our seventeenth year of competition, and we are excited about this year's club! Richmond Patriots baseball, under the auspices of the Central Virginia Homeschool Athletic Association, has grown since Coach Gregg Tobey started the program, and now includes middle school, junior varsity, and varsity teams. Our purpose is to use baseball to assist our players to become men of integrity and Christ-like character who will honor Jesus Christ in all they do, be responsible, become leaders, and make a difference for Him in the world. With third and fourth place finishes in the 2009 and 2013 HWSA tournaments, the coaches, players, and parents are grateful for the success God has allowed the program to enjoy over the years.
