We are Runbirds Baseball

Runbirds Baseball is New England’s premier baseball development program for players ages 7 and up. Our organization boasts teams at the 9U – 14U levels and College Scout Teams at the 15U – 17U levels. For over 10 years RunBirds Baseball (formerly Worcester Heat) base been the only developmental baseball program in Central Massachusetts to demonstrate longevity, tradition and most importantly; a true commitment to developing young players into fundamentally sound high school and college athletes. Simply put, there is no other program like Team RunBirds Baseball.


All members of the TMNE roster will receive the best baseball development around. 9U and 10U players are taught the basic principles of the game. 11U and 12U teams explore more advanced concepts including leading, stealing, picks-offs and other skills needed before reaching the big field. 13U and 14U teams train further to earn their spots on varsity high school rosters as freshmen or sophomores. Approximately 85% of players who are in the program 2 more years are varsity players by their sophomore year. Our College Scout Teams (15U – 17U) provide our high school players with the opportunity to further develop their skills and showcase their talents to play beyond high school.
