The Roughriders celebrated their silver anniversary in 2011, culminating 25 years of baseball in Haddonfield and the TriCounty Baseball League dating back to 1986. With over 600 games played, more than 200 players rostered, and two Carter Cup championships (1993, 2006), the Roughriders have established themselves as one of the finest baseball organizations in Southern New Jersey.

A panel of Roughrider historians selected players to a 25-year anniversary team. Criteria for inclusion is based on performance, longevity, and dedication to the game. The list has both a first team and second team, including three starting pitchers and a closer, positional players, utility player, and manager.
