Frisco RoughRiders History
known as the Shreveport Captains and Shreveport Dragons, this franchise came to Frisco and immediately made an impact in 2003.
That year, the RoughRiders won the division title, a feat they duplicated in 2004, 2008 and again in 2012. In 2004, the RoughRiders
even went all the way, winning a league title. Professional baseball is just one of those sporting events you have to see
up close and personal to truly appreciate, as there is simply no duplicating the arena experience no matter how impressive
you think your flatscreen is. And that definitely holds true for the RoughRiders, a team that has already had plenty of success
in little more than a decade in Frisco and looks to have a very bright future ahead of it.
Did you know that slugger first basemen Mark Teixeira, Chris Davis and Adrian Gonzalez all played for the RoughRiders?
is a franchise that has had its fair share of big-time bashers, but for some reason they always seem to end up with some of
the premier slugging first basemen. Teixeira, Davis and Gonzalez have all gone on to the next level and starred for various
teams, helping give the RoughRiders a reputation of developing some of the top-hitting first basemen in all of pro baseball.
Frisco RoughRiders Fans

in one form or another for a very long time, and the tradition is intact in a major way every time the Frisco RoughRiders
