Donations

Herts Baseball Club is dependent on the support of its members, sponsors, partners and fans. It is only with their encouragement that we are able to continue to build the best baseball programme in the UK.  

 

In the Club’s current financial year, among the main projects which we are looking to fund are: 

  • Expansion of the Herts Little League, offering a unique and positive experience for Hertfordshire youngsters. – We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for kids to learn the game of baseball and develop their skills and team spirit. 

 

  • Creation of team dugouts on both diamonds. – Team dugouts are a key feature of baseball venues. They provide a secure area for home and visiting teams to plan and execute their game plan. It provides seating for players, coaches and other team officials, as well as protection from rain and sun. 

 

  • Enclosure of the two baseball fields along the dead-ball line. – The club has already managed to install the backstop and outfield fence on both baseball diamonds and the next stage is to add fencing along the dead-ball line. This will lead to health and safety improvements for players and fans/parents, creating a more secure playing area for youth teams in particular. It will also reduce stoppage in the action due to ball rolling out of play. 

These projects are aimed specifically at improving the community and helping the youth in Hertfordshire achieve greatness… both on and off the field. Please help us to achieve these important goals. Donate now! No contribution is too small.
