2019 DBSA Spring Baseball Sponsorship
Thank you for your interest in sponsoring 2019 DBSA Spring Baseball. Your support allows us to provide youth in our community with an opportunity to play baseball in a team-oriented environment supported by coaches and parents.
Our mission is to help each player grow as a complete person to better meet the obstacles that may be faced in today’s society. We value the competition that builds self-esteem through preparation, determination, focus, commitment and sportsmanship.
We strive to provide players with the opportunity to play at a competitive level, in order to experience and develop life skills such as leadership, teamwork, and discipline.
As a community program we strive to provide baseball to players and families at a reasonable cost. Donations such as yours are critical to make baseball affordable for families and cover operating expenses such as uniforms, umpires, and equipment.
In return for your team sponsorship of $250, we will promote your business throughout our DBSA community with your name or logo on the uniform sleeve for the team of your choosing and our website:
www.dbsa14.com. As available, we will be sure to include recognition in other ways as well.
Our home fields are located at Fuhrman Park in Maytown. We encourage you to come watch your sponsorship in action and take in a game. You’ll be sure to enjoy yourself watching players from 4 years old to 14 years old take on the great game baseball!
