About 

 

The Thunder has been competing in the Palm Beach County area since the spring of 2000, and the 2020 fall season marks the club's 34th season. Prior to a rebranding in 2010, the club had previously been known as the Lookouts, Rockhounds, and Wave.  

 

For their first 30 seasons, the team played in the National Adult Baseball League (NABA), run locally by sportscaster Lou Palmer. With a change in league management in the spring of 2019, the team joined the Palm Beach Baseball League, which is affiliated with the Men's Adult Baseball League (MABL).  

 

Manager Mike Soulen has been at the helm for 34 seasons (17 years). With rosters frequently filled with former collegiate, semi-pro, and ex-minor league players, his teams have only missed the playoffs seven times, while winning four championships and runner-up status six times. Soulen has a 60.69 win %, and a record of 340-227-19.
