SM River Rats Announce Prep Baseball Report Scout Day!

ATTENTION:  2018 SM River Rat Baseball Players Graduation Years 2018-2023 - Saturday February 17th at Gorham Sports Center!!!

New NCAA rules prohibits Division I coaches from being off campus for camps from November 7th through the end of February. Coaches are going to be limited with their ability to see players during the winter months now. This will provide players the ability to provide updated, verified personal stats, video, and analysis to the 750+ college coaches that subscribe to the Prep Baseball Report.

Since its inception in 2005, the Prep Baseball Report has evolved into one of the country’s biggest and most respected independent scouting services, with a singular focus of providing comprehensive coverage in every state. Now, more than 750 colleges and pro scouts subscribe to the Prep Baseball Report services.  We take great pride in providing the most thorough and comprehensive high school baseball coverage in each state.

Prep Baseball Report events are designed to give players the maximum exposure needed to advance to the next level. Not only will you receive high-level exposure from college coaches, but all players at events will be videotaped, and the edited performance will be hosted on the website.

All players will receive an online profile with their verified statistics, scouting report, picture and video.

Additionally, all subsequent stories written about a prospect will be linked to the player’s profile, ultimately creating a one-stop shop for recruiters. Furthermore, the top players will be listed in our statewide player rankings and overall rankings.

Our ever-expanding player video library is a must for all college coaches. All statistics on the website are verified by our Prep Baseball Report scouts.

Splash-A-Thon Fundraiser/Benefit

We are proud to be able to give back to the community!  This past winter, the Southern Maine River Rats completed a Splash-A-Thon to help raise money for our organization AND a local non-profit.  Players from our organization solicited donations per "splash" made at our event at the Westbrook Community center and raised $2,500 for Ronald McDonald House Charity of Maine! 

We completed a tour of the house which provides a place for families to stay while a loved one is in the hospital.  It was a truly eye-opening experience for our players and families and showed how much can be accomplished when we put our mind and energy into something.

We also want the thank all of the businesses who donated to this cause which are located to the right hand side of this page. 

Thank You to the River Rat Family for once again, being the best around!
