The Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Baseball Club (YJBC) consists of over 30 undergraduate and graduate students interested in continuing to play competitive baseball at the collegiate level. YJBC meets 5+ times a week for practice, games, fundraising, and social events. The team competes in the National Club Baseball Association, which consists of over 100 different collegiate club baseball teams. The club plays anywhere from 28-32 games each school year, many of them against other regional universities. YJBC also works to promote events with other sports clubs in order to develop a sense of community between the Georgia Tech club sports teams.

Historically, the team has struggled to compete with comparable universities such as Clemson University, University of Georgia, and Florida State University. Georgia Tech’s participation, pitching, and fielding tend to be as good as, if not better, than most opponents. However, the team struggles offensively. A few years ago, Georgia Tech demolished the baseball field and batting cage that YJBC had been using and replaced the facility with other buildings. Since then, there has not been an adequate location for student athletes to practice baseball and softball who are not part of the NCAA Division I baseball or softball teams, so students do not have easy access to a baseball field nor a batting cage (neither on nor off campus). This project will provide students with an appropriate location to practice and play baseball or softball.

After receiving support from our club advisors, the Campus Recreation Center, Georgia Tech's Office of Capital Planning and Space Management, and other stakeholders, one of the last remaining obstacles to build the cage is to raise the necessary funds. 

We need your help to make this project come to life! Every little bit will get us closer to our goal and help us become the team that we know we can be. Thank you so much for your support!

 

Sincerely,

The Yellow Jacket Baseball Club
