Hello to everyone, My name is Rick Curti and I am the Founder and CEO of the Charlotte Bats, We are a grassroots movement to bring Major League Baseball to Charlotte. We started this journey about 4 years ago because we were curious as to see why Charlotte and the great state of North Carolina never had a franchise. We named our team the Bats from the minor league baseball team from 1994-2004 and the colors are that of our beautiful city, we felt that this was the best representation and can see everyone go Bat crazy. We want to thank everyone for all their love and support and without you, we would never exist. GO BATS!
