The Colorado Springs CageRat Collegiate Baseball Club is a summer collegiate baseball team and members of the Rocky Mountain Baseball League (RMBL), which was founded in 1999 and considered the premier summer collegiate baseball league in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region. The RMBL consists of 8 teams: the CagRats (Colorado Springs, CO), the Gameday Saints (Parker, CO), the Cougars (Denver, CO), the Foxes (Ft Collins, CO), the Rough Riders (Superior, CO), the Larks (Hays, KS), the Athletic (Dodge City, KS), and the BeeJays (Liberal, KS). The addition of two more teams starting in 2023 makes our league extremely strong, attractive to top players, and nationally competitive.
Our VISION is for the Colorado Springs CageRats to be the premier summer collegiate baseball program in the Rocky Mountain Region.
Our MISSION is to provide current college baseball players from around the United States an opportunity to develop their baseball skills in the most competitive environment possible as part of the CageRats and RMBL.
Outlaws to CageRats
The Outlaws started as the Gladiators in 2018 in the Mile High Collegiate Baseball League (MHCBL) and posted a 14-16 record while placing 7th out of 12 teams. The sponsors for the Gladiators chose to move in a different direction, so the leadership team took on the Colorado Springs Renegades in 2019, also in the MHCBL.
That year the team had a record of 20-10, placed 2nd out of 9 teams and missed going to the National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series by one game in the standings.
In 2020, the Outlaws moved to the Rocky Mountain Baseball League (RMBL) because of the quality of competition and strong league history where they completed the season with a 16-20 record in a much tougher league.
Because of Covid-19 and the lack of playing facilities, the Outlaws did not field a team in 2021.
This past year, the Outlaws returned to the RMBL and had a respectable record of 18-20 while placing tied for 4th out of 8 teams which included the addition of national powerhouses Hays Larks, Liberal BeeJays and Dodge City Athletics.
Effective October 1st, 2022, the Outlaws officially became known as the Colorado Springs CageRats Baseball Club and will continue as members of the RMBL.
The change from the Outlaws to the Colorado Springs CageRats brought an immediate positive impact as the CageRat group was able to sign 2 players from the SEC and 2 players from the Big 12 in the 1st week.
