A growing New Hampshire travel ball organization has partnered with a nationally ranked baseball program in North Texas in hopes of providing players with more recruiting opportunities.
The 603 Bandits, based out of Concord, N.H., will now fall under the umbrella of USA Prime and be known as USA Prime -- Bandits. Founder of the 603 Bandits, Steve Siravo, will be the Director of Baseball Operations.
"It will be beneficial to link a national organization with one that has success in New England," Siravo said. "It's a good combination because they'll take over the back-office administrative stuff. That will allow me to do what I do best -- go out and find guys, help them get recruited, and get them with select coaches."
Just last fall, the 603 Bandits partnered with Granite State Elite Baseball, which operates out of Elite Sports Academy in Epsom, N.H. That partnership provided the 603 Bandits programs with a facility to focus on development. Granite State Elite's 10U to 14U programs continued to operate under the GSE Baseball brand, and the 603 Bandits expanded to include summer and fall travel teams between 15U and 18U. Previously, the 603 Bandits did not have a training facility; the coaches and players strictly gathered for fall tournaments across New England.
