The inaugural season of the Genesee Rapids Baseball team is over. Thanks to all the players, coaches, volunteers and fans who contributed to the success of the season. The players grew in their game as well as matured in their faith.
The Rapids finished one game out of the playoffs in the Western Division of the NYCBL, considered by all an outstanding result for a new franchise. Finishing out the season just shy of playoffs was disappointing but we have numerous proud moments to reflect on in 2014.
