Your generous gift will help OHIO Baseball student-athletes succeed on and off the field!

Thanks to the support of a generous donor, we'll unlock a $10,000 gift when we reach $10,000 raised.
3/25 UPDATE: Gift unlocked!

Competing in Division I NCAA athletics takes more than talent – it takes dedication, determination, and a willingness to step back into the box after a swing and a miss. Competing amid a pandemic comes with its own set of obstacles. This is the time to rally behind our student athletes! This, Bobcats, is the Time to Rise.

In 2021, despite the irregularities of the COVID-19 pandemic, OHIO Baseball demonstrated their determination on and off the field, finishing the season with two athletes named 1st-team all-MAC and 10 athletes named academic all-MAC, while maintaining a 3.32 team GPA.

As they begin their 2022 conference schedule, we ask them every day to give 100% as students and as athletes. And today, we’re reaching out to ask you to stand with them through a gift of any amount to help fund team equipment, player development tools, and team travel. Your gift supports these students as they grow as athletes and as young men, learning to lead both on and off the field.

Help us reach our fundraising goal of $30,000! Give Now

“When you put on that jersey and wear the arched OHIO across your chest, you know you are playing for so much more than yourself. You’re playing for your teammates, coaches, family, former players, and alumni that have supported and continue to support this special program. I am proud to be an Ohio Bobcat and I know the relationships I’ve made at OU will carry with me forever.” –Jack Liberatore, RS Senior, RHP, Greensburg, PA


Compete for your coach one more time!

When you give to OHIO Baseball, make it in honor of your head coach. Throughout the campaign, we’ll have a friendly competition between the several great eras of OHIO Baseball, and when this campaign ends, we’ll announce the winning era. Your generous gift to our team will help our student-athletes succeed in their time at OHIO and beyond.
