Who are we?
We are the Colorado College club baseball team — a team that’s been part of our institution since 1885. The majority of CC's faculty and student body don’t even know that we have a baseball team, but that doesn't stop us from playing the game we love. In fact, this past fall season was the most successful in recent memory, with more games and player tryouts than ever before! We make sure that anyone who is passionate about baseball can enjoy America's pastime. For us, the club baseball team is more than playing a game that we love. It’s also where we develop lifelong connections.
What are we trying to do?
While we are rich in enthusiasm for the sport, our equipment is generally lacking. Our primary goal is to make sure that everyone who devotes their time to this sport has the proper equipment to play at their best. We’ve usually relied on bringing our own gear and purchasing used gear to fill in the gaps. This year we hope to purchase new practice shirts, hats, gloves, bats, catcher’s gear, and uniforms for our members so they can represent CC baseball in style.
Why should you contribute?
The future of CC club baseball is brighter than ever. We have 18 members, including 10 new recruits. More people are becoming interested in CC club baseball because as Joey Larabee ’20 says, “If you go out on the field and give all that you can muster, I guarantee that you’ll walk away with a smile on your face, win or lose.” In addition, your donation will help us improve the accessibility of America’s favorite pastime at Colorado College, regardless of financial situation. Even a small donation helps. We want to extend Colorado College’s 134-year legacy, and with your support we can.
