Back To All Coaches

Rick Roberts

Rick has been coaching/playing softball for 40 years. For many years Rick pitched and coached in a fastpitch league in Los Angeles.  18 years ago, Rick moved to Ellsworth from LA.  He began coaching a 16U summer league in 1998.  That same year he began as a volunteer coach at Ellsworth High School for Varsity Softball.  In 1998, he started doing pitching clinics in Ellsworth, and that has led to doing clinics for the entire down east area including traveling weekly to the Machias area.  Rick became the Varsity Softball Coach for Ellsworth High School 10 years ago, but has resigned his post so that he can work with kids from all over the state of Maine.  Rick is currently teaching pitching for several Maine schools as well as working with hitters and fielders.  During his coaching career, he has had the pleasure of watching many of his athletes continue their softball careers at the college level from Division 1 to Division 3.   Ricks students are as young as 8 years old, and some are still pitching in college.

In 2018 Coach Roberts joined the Husson University Softball Coaching Staff as the Pitching Coach.

Rick has been an instructor at Sluggers doing one on one lessons and pitching clinics since 2016.



Excellent facility with excellent staff!! We joined Sluggers for the first time last year and it's probably the best decision we ever made for our son, who wants to play baseball for as long as he can!! Sluggers is allowing him that opportunity and we are beyond grateful for the wonderful coaching that goes on in Sluggers!! Excellence truly starts at Sluggers!

This is an excellent facility with an amazing team and family atmosphere! The focus on player health and development is awesome! The motivation and encouragement from the coaching staff make everyone work harder and better with each other!

The staff there is super knowledgeable and friendly. Can't wait to go again!

Sluggers is AWESOME! My son loves it there and has grown so much as a player. Great instruction, fair prices, and an excellent year-round facility. If your child loves baseball or softball, do yourself a favor and visit Sluggers!
