Rec Travel teams lose their higher skilled players to the allure of Club Baseball Teams. The big misconception about Club Baseball is that the teams are always better. In some cases this may be true, but in general Club Teams are just better funded. And that is because of they charge parents a lot more money. We believe with the right amount of fundraising, donations, sponsorships and Team Spirit Night Events we can lessen the financial burden of the high cost of playing competitive team baseball.
We are seeking private or personal donors/sponsors who are willing to help assist us in covering our major expenses such as Tournament Entry Fees, Team Equipment (Baseballs, Bats, Helmets, Catcher Gear), and our End of the Season Awards Party. We believe with the right amount of fundraising, donations, and sponsorships, we can minimize the financial burden of the high cost of playing competitive travel team baseball.
A player’s uniform (hat, jersey, pants, belt & socks) can cost parents between $75.00 and $100.00. If the team uses a Home, an Away and a Tournament uniform the price could run around $200.00 to $250.00. Than the average local baseball tournament cost approximately $650.00 per tournament. If you play in a tournament at one of the larger complex’s such as Ripken/Aberdeen Tournament may cost as much as $1,500.00. If a team plays in 4 local tournaments and 2 regional tournaments, your budget for tournaments could easily be over $7,500.00. An Elite Travel baseball team could have an annual budget of $15,000.00. That is about $1,250.00 per player.
In 2018, the team plan on playing in in 2 local tournaments costing an estimate $1,300.00.
Uniforms: ($250 x 13 players) = $3,250.00

Tournament Entry Fees (2 local tournaments in 2018): $1,300.00
