With this league record the Cougars finished in fifth place in league play for 2013.  The Cougars entered the Regional Tournament as the number five seed. We won the tournament and  qualified for the World Series.  Qualifying to the World Series once again and striving to compete last year, after finishing third in the nation four years ago.  Returning back to this prestigious NBC World Series tournament with a new format will be a challenge.  At the NBC World Series will get the opportunity to face some of the best teams and players in the nation.  The team and players will get great exposure from various major league scouts and colleges for future opportunities.  The 2010 World Series was the best finish the the Cougars have ever had or any Colorado team, taking 3rd place.  Go to the NBC World Series tab to see the results.  We had nine players sign professional contracts and some players elevate their college careers to D-1 levels from exposure at the World Series.  This season will be our 25th year and we are going to maintain our strong program by turning our roster over this summer and adding very talented players.  We have some exciting news for this summer, we will be merging with the Jeffco RockHounds team.  This will provide a new coaching staff and bring some of their players from last years team. The RockHounds have been a strong contender within our league for over 10 years.  Marcus Wood (RockHounds GM) will take over as coach, Taylor Vincent (former Cougar) will be the assistant coach, Chad Jacobsen will return as bench coach.  Mark Cerullo will be the General Manager.  We will remain as the Denver Cougars moving forward but will certainly have the RockHound influence.
                                                                                                                                                                                         The 2014 season brings some new faces and challenges to the Cougars.  I believe that this team has the potential to regain and maintain our status as one of the nations finest summer programs.  Our goals are still the same to return to the National Baseball Congress World Series and win. We will be returning seven players from the Cougars and three from the RockHounds off of last summers roster.  New additions in all areas we feel that our defense and team speed will be improved, while adding some punch to our line up, flash backs of the old Cougars. We are also adding some young arms to the pitching staff.  I feel that our staff will be even stronger and more balanced this year.  Not only are we adding talent to the roster, I truly believe that we will have great chemistry with this squad for years to come. The roster will be filled with players from various strong college programs from all levels.  This years schedule is a full one, with over 60 games scheduled within the league and some outside games with the Jay Hawk League.  By getting involved with these outside Leagues this will give the players exposure and experiences they could not get playing for another team over the summer.  Again our focus as a team will be to win the Rocky Mountain Baseball League and earn that hard to reach birth to the World Series in August.  Let's play ball!!!  Come out and see Cougars Baseball.
