Havasu Heat baseball team enters 32nd season

LAKE HAVASU CITY – The Havasu Heat Baseball team kicked off their thirty second championship season last week. Opening night of the baseball championships took place on Thursday, May 30 at the John M. Wade Memorial Field located at Lake Havasu High School. 

Havasu Heat Baseball was founded by Dick “Chief” Twyman and his son Rick Twyman in 1992. The original plan was to create a national baseball team consisting of athletes that played at the college level.  

Over the decades, Twyman along with his father, have been passing along their competitive expertise to aspiring athletes. The past 32 seasons have been promising as they have collected 1,099 wins with only 273 losses.  

Last week’s opening game for the season had the Havasu Heat playing with opposing team California Jays. Players from all over the country showed up to take to the field for the beginning of another incredible summer season.  

Each game will be $5 each while anyone ages 12 and younger can attend games free of charge. This year, the team is scheduled to compete with teams ranging from California, Utah, and Nevada.  

The Havasu Heat Baseball season’s weekly competitions will resume until their last game that will be on July 13. You can view a complete listing of scheduled games by visiting

The father and son duo has created the yearly competitions as a stepping stone for many young hopefuls involved in the sport attending high school, junior colleges, and universities. The Heat baseball founders have assisted in getting over a hundred athletes transitioned into playing professionally with various brands and organizations. Competing on the Havasu Heat team is a great opportunity for the players to be discovered by major sports agents and have a stab at someday playing in major league baseball.
