Top of the First

With the beginning of the new year comes the beginning of our community sponsorship drive for the 2023 season. Each year, we ask that every Jr Phoenix Baseball family work to secure sponsorships to pay for their team’s tournaments. All sponsorships obtained stay with your age group and any left over funds at the end of the year carry over to the next season for your teams.

The different levels for available sponsorships are listed below. As you can see, higher levels come with more benefits for the sponsor. More information, including the needed form to fill out to become a sponsor, are found on our website on the Sponsorship Page  

We are fortunate that our teams have had a lot of community support in the past. Age groups that have obtained a specific community sponsor in the past have priority for that sponsor again
for the next year, so please check with your age group's General Manager to see the list of sponsors from last year.

We know it is not anyone’s favorite activity to solicit sponsors, but this is an important part of how our organization is run. The sponsor form linked above comes with a nice summary of our organization and an explanation of why we look for sponsorships.  Remember that Jr Phoenix Baseball is a 501(c)(3) tax‚Äźexempt charitable organization.

Good luck everyone and thank you in advance for your efforts on our 2023 community sponsorship drive!
