News and Announcements
The RIver Bandit Family would like to send its thoughts and prayers to Mary Rohrbaugh and family as we all mourn the loss of Dave Rohrbaugh. Dave was a long time friend and supporter of the Napoleon River Bandits and Napoleon baseball in general. Dave was a founding member of the Napoleon Diamond Boosters and a huge influence on many Napoleon baseball and softball players. You could count on Dave to be at every home Napoleon RIver Bandit game and you could count on Dave to have an opinion on that year’s River Bandit team. Dave was quick to volunteer and was always looking for ways to promote River Bandit Baseball. He will be missed. Please say a prayer tonight for the Rohrbaugh family to help them through this difficult time.
We are sad to announce that there will be no 2020 River Bandit Fall League. The Fall League will return in 2021.
Bandit Alum Art Warren has gotten the call to the Big Leagues. Art played for the Bandits in 2010 and 2011 where he was a combined 8 and 1 on the mound. The 2010 and 2011 teams that Art was a part of had a 2 year combined record of 100 wins and 22 losses, they were District 1 champs both years, State Runner-up in 2010 and State Champs in 2011. In 2011 the Bandits finished the season as Regional Runner-up.
GOOD LUCK ART!….you have made everyone in Bandit Nation proud!
Dear Business Owner/Organization
Because of the past successes of the Napoleon American Legion Baseball team, every year we are invited to play in tournaments all over the country. The upcoming 2019 season is no different. We have been asked to participate in the 25th annual Alaskan Airlines Tounament Tour as well as the 42nd annual Gopher Classic in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Although the Napoleon Legion Post 300 covers many of our playing expenses throughout the season, we have always asked our players to "fundraise" our travel expenses. In years past, we have made trips to California, South Dakota, Oregon, North Carolina, and Seattle - all with the help of generous support of local businesses.
Can your business help defray some of our expenses? Through a donation of an advertisement of $100 or more, your business card will be included on our poster-sized schedule. These posters are distributed all over the Northwest Ohio area and on our website. You will be given a poster to display in your business as well. We are now a 501 (c) (3) organization so your donation is TAX DEDUCTABLE! (Tax ID # 46-3566112).
Should you have any questions, please give me a call at (309) 212 - 4061. All checks should be made payable to "River Bandit Baseball Inc" and mailed to PO Box 651, Napoleon, OH 43545.
Thank you for your support! It is very much appreciated.
Chad Donsbach - Head Coach
