Baseball

Keep Scrolling

Envision yourself patrolling an outfield with lush green grass, nestled by mountains with a view of the Pacific Ocean.

For Cate’s baseball players, that dream is a reality. Jackson Field is one of the most picturesque fields around, and it has been home to Cate baseball since 2009. It isn’t just the natural beauty of the baseball diamond that sparkles at Cate, but the play on it as well.

The Rams have twice made the CIF-Southern Section finals. Head Coach Ben Soto has helped guide several Rams into college baseball, including a few at the Division 1 level.
