Welcome to Thunder baseball
History of the Thunder
Boca Thunder team's origins are the Boca Raton Youth Baseball league. In late spring of 2007 a 10 and under All-Star team was hand-picked for post season play. The All-Star team finished second in the district tournament, thus qualifying them for the state tournament. After competing in the state tournament the Thunder was formed with ten of the boys from the All-Star team. Eight of the boys still play on the team today which is a rarity in travel baseball. Since their inception the Thunder has worked extremely hard under the guidance of their head coach Pete Graffeo. Their hard work and dedication has paid off on the field. During the 2013 summer season Thunder compiled a record of 27-16-3 while reaching the finals in two major tournaments. Perfect Game ranked Thunder number 26 in the nation for 16U teams. During the 2012 summer and fall the Thunder compiled a record of 29-12 while playing mostly 17U tournaments. During the 2009 through 2011 seasons the Thunder won over 145 games. They competed in 29 tournaments reaching the semi-finals in 25, the finals in 18 and winning the championship in 10 of them.
