After a very long season of playing for the Las Vegas Heat, filled with extensive traveling, three Solano County natives decided to start their own team. The Solano Mudcats were etablished in 1990 by Shawn Scibek, George Sebena, and Jed Czajkowski. Some team names were discussed, Czajkowski offered up the Mudcats name and all 3 agreed that it should be the Solano Mudcats rather than the Vacaville Mudcats.
The Mudcats soon joined the Fontenetti's League based in San Jose, a year round league where the Cats played over a hundred games a year. They then decided to join the Cal-Neva Wood Bat league. Finally, the Mudcats found a home with the Sacramento Rural League in 1993. The Sacramento Rural league, which has been around since 1946, provided the stability the Mudcats needed. Sebena and Czajkowski have since moved on but frequently check in on the Cats. Shawn Scibek remains the heartbeat of the Mudcats both as a coach as well as serving on the board.
Once an established top semi-pro club, the Mudcats transitioned to a Collegiate Baseball organization in 2012. Solano enjoyed 5 years as an independent summer Collegiate program, starting in 2018 they are proud to announce that they will be joining the Bay Area Collegiate League. As one of eight teams in the conference Solano looks forward to seeking their first "league" title since their last season as part of the Sacramento Rural League in 2011.
The Mudcats offer clinics and camps to local youth and continue to offer player instruction up through the Solano Mudcats Collegiate team.
