Welcome to the home of the Navarro College Bulldogs — conference champions from 1994-1998, 2000, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016. The Bulldog baseball team is a member of the Region XIV East Zone, or The Texas Eastern Athletic Conference.   The Texas Eastern Athletic Conference has six members, including the Navarro Bulldogs, Paris Dragons, Angelina Roadrunners, Northeast Eagles, Panola Ponies, and the Bossier Parish Cavaliers.

Navarro baseball won the Region XIV Tournament Championship and advanced to the JUCO World Series in Grand Junction, Colo., in 2011 and 2013.  The Bulldogs won the NJCAA Championship in 2011.

Over the past 20 years, NC Baseball has averaged 37 wins per season.  The Bulldogs have enjoyed five seasons of 40+ wins and 5 more of 35+ during that span.  Only twice during two decades have they finished spring seasons with less than 30 wins.

In 2008, Navarro broke the school record for wins by finishing 47-11, with 12 players signing NCAA Division I scholarships.
