After three years of development work we can send a junior team in the race this year finally. The team consists mostly of players that played for the youth team (U15) until last year. Thus, the team is one of the youngest teams in the competition. In general, only boys are playing baseball in this age (16 to 18 years). The team of head coach Joe Pekerosky occurs in the junior division of the Baden-Württemberg Baseball and Softball Federation (BWBSV) .
In the past, the Cougars were able to achieve success in this age group. In 2005, the junior team of Karlsruhe ended as runner-up at the final German Junior's Championship tournament. Many players from that time are now playing in the Cougars Division 2 men's team.
