Making Baseball Backstop Dreams a Reality in Northern Virginia
Are you hoping to build a youth baseball or softball field in your Northern Virginia community this year? Do you have concerns about how you are going to purchase the baseball backstop and get all of the tasks involved accomplished? If so, take a second to skim through our list of baseball related suggestions. It may just make you feel a little less stressed.
When it comes to realizing your youth baseball/softball dreams, financing and fundraising initiatives are undoubtedly two concerns that you may be wrestling with. One way to get a head start on both is to investigate the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. It is a nationwide grant program that’s designed to help those engaged in youth baseball and softball initiatives. The monies may be used for field acquisition and development as well as equipment procurement. There are typically four grant deadlines each year. They tend to occur in January, April, July and October. Full information about the program, including an application, is available online through the MLB Community. If you are not eligible for that grant, other financial resources to consider are Good Sports, the Little League Urban Initiative and the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation. Information about them and their application processes are readily available online too.
Speaking of the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, it is associated with the Badges for Baseball Program, which is available in Northern Virginia. Participating in the program is a superior way to satisfy your baseball/softball team’s coaching and mentoring needs. The people that serve as coaches and mentors are actually members of law enforcement, which is a positive thing for community relations as well.
