Tampa Bay Warriors and Team Citius Unite!

What does this mean for you?

The Tampa Bay Warriors and Team Citius both have experienced coaching staffs, all of which have played professional baseball. That experience is invaluable in the development of young talent. Each coach whether a position player or pitcher attained specific skill sets as well as the mental edge needed to succeed at such a high level. Those lessons can not be read a book, or learned from watching a game, they lived it.

Beyond their playing experience, each coach has garnered invaluable relationships with college coaches, agents and scouts. By combining the organizations there will be twice as much exposure for the players. The more scouts that see them, the more players will be recruited, the more scholarships will be awarded. 

Have fun, Play Hard and always Conduct yourself in a Professional Manner.


Are you placing your hopes on a college coach seeing you at a high school game and pulling out a scholarship offer? Unless you are a football player, think again.

Most college coaches don’t spend much time watching high school games unless they are going to see a specific player they already know about. This is increasingly true across sports that have a competitive environment outside of the high schools.
