A special Thank you to our sponsors! We strongly encourage our players and families to frequent their businesses whenever possible. Without the generous help of our local business sponsors, the players fees would be at least 2-3x of what they are currently. The Blacksburg Baseball Association is 100% self funded and receives NO government funding from any recreational department or government source.
Expenses are high due to field rentals, umpires (we only hire VHSL umps), equipment, baseballs, liability insurance to both MCPS and the Town of Blacksburg, Dixie State and National fees, uniforms, and various administrative fees such as the website.
We also strongly believe in having very small teams in order to maximize player development via lots of playing time. Thus, this component of our mission statement significantly increases expenses exponentially as more teams equals much higher costs (uniforms, insurance, games, umpires & etc,). Many other franchises put 16-17 kids on a team, but we do not believe in the philosophy. Players can only get better by playing!
Thanks again to all our Fall and Spring Sponsors!
