Team expects to be on the field and is hopeful fans will be allowed to watch, as well
After missing out on a baseball season, the Ridgefield Raptors are preparing for a 2021 campaign.
The team released its schedule Thursday, and the organization is releasing the names of the players it has signed, two per week, over the fall and winter months.
Former Camas Papermaker Grant Heiser is one of the 2021 Raptors. The team’s general manager, Gus Farah, said to expect more local talent to be on the roster, as well.
While the pandemic washed away the 2020 season, the Raptors expect to be able to play in 2021 — with the hope that fans will be allowed to be in attendance, as well. The first game is scheduled for June 2 against the Cowlitz Black Bears. The first weekend home series will begin June 4 against the Bend Elks.
“We are no doubt excited to return to the ballpark in 2021,” Farah said. “We have been following the state and local guidance for COVID, and safety is our top priority. We also are optimistic about this coming summer and seeing our fans at the Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex.”
The Raptors hope to “Rock the RORC” in 2021.
The team, which consists of college baseball players in a wood bat league, is scheduled to play 59 games in 2021, including 31 home games. To see the entire schedule, go to: https://ridgefieldraptors.com/2021-schedule-announced/
