The Importance of Fundraising for the Baseball Team by Ryan Siuta

Being a small, local school just outside of New York City, fundraising for the baseball team is one of the many challenges we face leading up to the season. The fact that we start northeast baseball in the beginning of March, we take two separate spring training trips. The first is a trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where we play at the Ripken Experience Complex at the end of February. The second trip is approximately two weeks later during spring break where we go to the Cary, North Carolina to play at the USA National Training Complex.

As we get to school in the fall, the process of fundraising begins. We start by sending out emails for donations to loved ones, former coaches, and grueling process that spans over 5 months but one that is extremely necessary.
