Todd "Nellie" Dilbeck shows good form in the 2008 Season, his first year on the team. 

The Rancho Murieta Bandits of the Gold Country Vintage Base Ball League are set to take the field starting in early April. This season, the Bandit schedule features FIVE home games here at Rancho Murieta Stonehouse Field II. If the previous two seasons are any indication, this season will again prove to be very entertaining for the "cranks" and ballists alike.

The vast majority of Bandits are returning for this season, including the addition of one true"muffin" (rookie) in Colby Craig, and the return of three super subs as regular ballists, Bob "Bullet" Gignilliat, Todd "Nellie" Dilbeck, and Todd "Penny" Pennington.

Be on the lookout for your home team. Feel free to contact Blake Carmichael ( for details about the league, or visit the Bandit and league websites, here at and

Home dates are listed here (all dates are Sunday): April 19 (11AM), May 17 (1:30PM), June 7 (1:30PM), July 12 (1:30PM), and August 30 (11AM).

We look forward to providing the community with a fun, family friendly atmosphere, so that all ages can enjoy the game "the way it was meant to be played!"
