Coach Raley has been named Baldwin County Coach of the Year (8 years), Wiregrass Coach of the Year (3 years), and the Mobile Press Register Coach of the Year (1996).

The 2017 season looks promising for the UMS-Wright Baseball Team. The Bulldogs will play a demanding schedule to prepare themselves for tough Area 1 competition against Satsuma and Thomasville. Six everyday players return from last year's team along with two of the 2016 top three pitchers. Coach Raley and his staff realize there is much experience to gain for some JV players who are moving up to play at the Varsity level. This young talent will play an important role for the Bulldogs this season.
Join the Bulldogs at Radcliffe Field and support the team as they make a run for another state title.
