Welcome to Texas Thunder Baseball
Texas Thunder Baseball is a non-profit organization that has been dedicated to the development of baseball skills in San Antonio area youth since 2009, and we take great pride in helping young players get to the next level of play. We focus on building character as well as developing skills and talent by emphasizing teamwork, integrity, morals, discipline, sportsmanship and honesty. We believe that each player should represent himself in a way that honors himself, his teammates, his peers and his family.
We are looking for players/parents that will allow us to share our passion for the game with them. We are looking for players that have dreams and aspirations of playing at the next level (high school, college, professional), and who have the desire and determination to achieve their goals. We are looking for players/parents that will be as committed to our organization as we will be to them.
Ultimately Texas Thunder Baseball teaches players to respect the game, establish a good work ethic and to play hard. We strive to provide opportunities and exposure for young competitive baseball players in the San Antonio area that are not available to them in a little league environment.
