Baseballs seem to get more expensive every year. On average, we will go through about 10 balls per game. Once these balls are scuffed enough they are no longer able to be used in games, so they then become practice balls. Your donation will help us have a steady supply of game ready baseballs for our home games.
As baseball players there are a variety of small things we buy to stay competitive. These items include tape, rosin bags, batting gloves, and so on. With a $15 donation, you will help keep the team supplied with whatever they might need.
The price of a jersey depends on the quality used to make them. We like to supply our players with quality jerseys that lets them represent the Razorbacks proudly. Your donation will help us in getting enough jerseys for a 30 man roster. These jerseys will also be reused the following year.
We have no home field, so we have to reserve dates and times on city fields in order to get our practices in. These practices will usually cost us about $60 for two hours. Help us keep a consistent twice a week practice schedule!
Umpire fees are our biggest expense when hosting a home series. Their rate is set by BUNWA Baseball Umpires North West Arkansas, which is a non-profit organization that takes pride in officiating amateur games in our area!
Hosting a home series has lots of factors. Umpires need to be paid for their time and fields need to be reserved. When fields are reserved we also must have them prepped for a game. This can include lights, dragging the dirt, and chalking the foul lines.
