About the club
Welcome to The Folsom Blues
The Folsom Blues Baseball Club was founded in June, 2018. We are a local travel team filled with like minded families and players. Our goal is to prepare our players on and off of the field for high school, college and beyond. We measure our success based on the process, improvement, effort and respect. We play throughout the greater Sacramento area, as well as trips to southern California to explore colleges.
Having a vast background in coaching collegiate baseball, Matt brings an abundance of baseball experience to The Blues. He has coached at Los Medanos College, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine and UCLA. He also spent summers in the Cape Cod Baseball League, Northwoods League and the California Coastal League. He has coached over 20 players that have played Major League Baseball and nearly 200 players that have been selected in the MLB draft.
A former pitcher for California State University, Stanislaus, Chad played three years of collegiate baseball and brings a wealth of baseball knowledge to the Blues. For nearly 15 years, he has coached youth travel ball for ages ranging from 10 thru 18 years old with IBAC, the Folsom Flames, and the Folsom Blues. Several of the players he coached have gone on to play baseball at the collegiate level. In addition to baseball, Chad has also coached a variety of other youth sports for over 20 years.
Blues Headed to New York
Home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and, as the story goes, the birthplace of baseball, Cooperstown, NY is a wonderful vacation for any baseball fan. But, for a 12-year-old travel team it is the ultimate destination. Every summer, for twelve straight weeks, hundreds of travel teams make their way to New York to play each other in one-week long tournaments. In an atmosphere of sportsmanship and comradery, teams go head to head in skills competitions and games.
The Blues are excited to head to Cooperstown for the week of July 11-17. We look forward to our players playing in this amazing tournament and having this wonderful experience.
