CageRat Baseball

Every athlete wants to achieve their full potential. Most programs struggle to get them there.

It’s like there’s a glass ceiling. Many coaches can only help their players get as good as they are. Some don’t know how to push them past their current level.

In 2010, Tad Reida founded CageRat Baseball to help athletes achieve their potential both on and off the field. He’s played and coached baseball for 27 years, including coaching college teams. Over the past 6 years, he’s helped over 150 players move on to college baseball, many at the D1 level. Our players have gone on to play at schools like University of North Carolina (ACC), Air Force, Marshall, and New Orleans.


With his experience and your commitment, you can make to the next level.

Parent Testimonial

Lisa Foster | CageRat Mom

My son has been playing baseball since he was 5 years old and competitive travel ball over the past 10 years. Tad worked hard to get my son the necessary exposure he needed at the Division 1 level.

Tad’s college connections span from coast to coast, and he is strategic and organized in planning his teams’ travel schedules. I loved that he traveled with the teams all along the east coast, getting my son valuable attention he never would have received had he just played in Colorado. Now my son has gotten recruited by the University of North Carolina, with the hopes of one day being drafted by the MLB.
