    Raider Nation Baseball

    Welcome to Raider Nation

    Founded in 2009, Raider Nation, in partnership with the Hastings YMCA, offers an In-House Baseball Program that serves ballplayers ages 4-9 (Pre-K thru 3rd grade) with a season that runs from the beginning of June through early August, depending on age level. A child's grade at the time of registration determines their eligibility for each program level.

    The program provides each player a hat, pants and jersey with RN and YMCA logos.  Each team is fully equipped with bats and catchers gear.  Players must provide their own glove and batting helmet. 

    In-House Baseball registration fee varies from $60 - $160 based on the level. Late registrations may be accepted dependent upon availability and payment of a $100 late fee. Late registrations carry no guarantee of uniforms being ready for opening day but we will do our utmost.
