Herts Baseball Club is dependent on the support of its members, sponsors, partners and fans to continue to build, grow and improve the Club.
Basing Hill Ballpark Project
We are currently raising funds for Basing Hill Ballpark which is the club’s branch in North West London. The project involves levelling and resurfacing the damaged playing field with new grass to make it suitable for baseball and then adding the infrastructure to develop it into a ballpark where kids and adults can play baseball and enjoy organised events and food in the park. In August 2021 our crowdfunding campaign raised over £21,000 on Spacehive for the first phase of the project. We are now looking to fund Phase 2 which involves the installation of the backstop, pitching mound and infield clay areas.
