Recreational baseball for Springfield teens
Is there anything more exciting than going to a baseball game and watching a Derek Jeter or Steven Strasberg hit or pitch? One thing comes to mind: watching your own child play ball. Each of us has kids or has neighbors and friends with kids, and many of them love baseball. They can play it, first at the Little League level and then as they start to grow into teenagers, at the Babe Ruth league level.
For 13 to 18 year old kids who want to spend a spring or a fall in the 90 foot diamond, major league baseball regulation size, the Springfield Babe Ruth league gives them that opportunity to compete and thrive in a good learning environment. Each year, Springfield Babe Ruth fields more than a dozen teams and plays in competition for a local title. The best players get to be on an All Star team and face some even more rigorous competition.
The program is entirely voluntary. There's no office, no paid staff. The parents and other volunteers that run the program need the support of a community that recognizes that having active kids in an organized baseball program is a good thing. And we need your support as sponsors.
Would you please consider sponsoring a team or becoming a general sponsor of the Springfield Babe Ruth league as a community service. We need the money to support the program, to buy baseballs, to keep up the fields, and to provide the umpires that run the games.
In return, you get the connection to more than 100 families in this community where your business is located who recognize that you are supporting their kids and they are likely to come right back and think of you first when they are thinking about taking their business somewhere.
Regardless of the line of work you are in, this is a good civic involvement (and it's a tax deductible donation). What do you get? There are a number of levels to participate: You can have your name on the jersey of each player on a team, you'll be in our program and family mailings for one year, with your promotional messages (or discount offers for participating families), and this year, we're examining ways to get some banners up at our home field batting cage at Hooes Road Field.
