Come Play for the CLONES
Welcome to Colorado Cyclones Baseball Club
The Colorado Cyclones Baseball Club is a competitive summer baseball team comprised of top collegiate prospects from the area. We are the 5-time, defending Mile High Collegiate Baseball League Champion (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019), as well as, a top 5 finish and overall best Defensive team at the 2018 NBC World Series. We emphasize a winning culture that focuses on the continued development of each individual player. An important cornerstone to our program is our home complex of Nelson Farms in Johnstown, CO and the field crew who do an excellent job of grounds maintenance and field prep for our players. Most importantly, none of this would be possible without our generous support base of sponsors, former players, and their families...once a ‘Clone, always a ‘Clone! See how you can become part of our family and join CLONE NATION!
