The Raiders have a coach that is one of the best in the Rio Grande Valley even though their record does not show it Coach Parker is steadily improving the Raiders baseball program. Two senior and three sophomores have to become the leaders for the Raiders in 2017. Josue Perales and Jordan Janskowski are the seniors returning and Jose Hernandez, Ricky Ibarra, and Raul Gonzalez are the sophomores who gained valuable experience last season. Pitching will be the key for the Raiders in 2017. The Raiders could put out a good offensive team out on the field, but the pitching must come through. The Raiders have only won 38 games since 2010, but if the Raider nation is patient there is some good talent in the younger players at and headed to Rivera in the near future. No one should take the Raiders lightly in 2017.
