Cruz Baseball Fall Banquet

We are proud to announce that our first ever fall banquet in our inaugural year in shaping future Division 1 and Professional Baseball Players was a hit!!  This was a special event for the Cruz Baseball Family and Staff.  It was a huge success and we thank everyone that came out to support our players and the Organization.  A special thanks to Luke Mandola, Jr. and Kory Clemens at Katch 22 for making our banquet a great night.


This Banquet allowed our players and their families to celebrate the start of the fall season. We are creating that bond that is needed in order to be successful together as a unit, on the field as well as off of it. 


The event also consisted of the honoring of the man that got it all started, Jose "Cheo" Cruz. Cruz Baseball the Organization retired the #25 as a tribute to the Astros Legend.  No one in the Organization will be able to wear the famous number that was worn by the legendary Houston Astros outfielder.
