Jackson Hicks (Greensboro Army) is our first alumni player to sign a affiliate club contract with the Minnesota Twins. While he has set the bar high a number of our signees have moved on to higher levels. Those players include Alexander Leija (High Point Bats),  and Zach Lauzon (Burlington Royals). Our league also includes a number of players who played in affiliate and high level indy ball in past years.

Want To Help Us Continue To Grow?

Each team and player is actively searching for generous donors and sponsors to help improve our league both on and off of the field. Please consider joining the likes of our sponsors below to help us take the next step in our journey into year two. No donation is too big or too small. Our players incur food, transportation, and housing expenses while in pursuit of their childhood dream. A sponsorship brochure is shown below. While this example highlights the defending champion S. Carolina Yankees each pro team has their specific brochure.
