Fees and Fundraising
The cost of running a baseball program like ours is substantial. To help keep the program competitive, address increasing costs, and make it affordable for all families, we need to do some fundraising. Although participation is not mandatory, all players will benefit from fundraising as team members, so please help our teams reach our fundraising goals.
$50 per player (nonrefundable) - covers 2 week tryout period - due on or before 1st tryout

Includes all practice facilities, team tournament entrance fees, umpires, HSAA All Sports Banquet for players and coaches, and Baseball Banquet for players, coaches, and players' parents. Includes 1 game cap (~$30). All other uniform items need to be purchased separately. All fall fees other than tryout fees are included.

New Angels for this year are encouraged to try to raise $300 from Hit-A-Thon pledges and business donations. Returning Angels are encouraged to try to raise $500 or more. Varsity players are urged to strive for $1000 or more to help with World Series expenses. Players can choose to raise money through hit-a-thon donations, business sponsorships, or both. However, we ask all players to participate in the hit-a-thon as hitters (unless injured).
Each player is to collect pledges from friends & family for his longest hit. This is an exciting event for the whole family with music, food & fun. In addition to raising funds for the program, this event gives players and parents from all teams an opportunity to come together for an evening of baseball. Injured players can participate using the alternate form of the fundraising letter (uses a team average distance).
All players are encouraged to approach local businesses as potential sponsors for our team. Special recognition of sponsors will be given based on the sponsorship level.
The three players with the highest total funds raised will each receive gift cards of $100, $75, & $50, respectively. Players are challenged to honor each of their teammates by participating and having a minimum of 10 contributors (individuals or business).
