Scholarships for Spring 2023 Season

As an all-volunteer organization, dedicated to giving kids an opportunity to learn and grow from baseball and softball, we never want a player to be denied the opportunity to play because of cost.

If you would like to request a scholarship for the 2023 Spring season, or to nominate someone for a scholarship, please complete a scholarship application here.

A scholarship application does not register the player. Players still need to be registered.
