The Socal Sparrows formerly known as the South Bay Sparrows enter their second season in Sunset league play under the direction of Ryan Davis.

Davis, unhappy with the results of the 2017 season has revamped his approach. The SoCal Sparrows will feature a 31-man roster, upgraded facilities (Vanguard University) and a new pre-game and jersey apparel deal with Adidas. The advancements to the Sparrows Baseball Club organization has lead to quality talent and a great deal of excitement coming out of the Sparrows Camp. Look for the SoCal Sparrows to bounce-back from their 7-18 Sunset League record from a year ago and make their way into the SBL Playoffs.
