Excelling in Division 1 NCAA athletics demands more than skill–it requires commitment, resilience, and the fortitude to step into the box after a swing in a miss. Now is the moment to support our student-athletes. This is the moment for our bobcats to rally behind our athletes!
Make a gift to support OHIO Baseball!
The OHIO Baseball team exemplified their relentless spirit both on and off the field. In the 2022 season, OHIO Baseball secured a fourth seed in the MAC tournament with an overall record of 29-22 and a conference record of 21-15. Alongside their impressive athletic performance, the team also garnered academic recognition with 10 student-athletes named to the Academic All-MAC team while maintaining a team GPA of 3.32. Entering the 2023 season, we encourage our players to continue giving their all as students and athletes.
Today, we ask for your support by making a contribution of any amount to help fund operational needs including team equipment, light facility enhancements, and player and team travel. With the support of our donors, OHIO Baseball can ensure that its players will have the tools and resources to perform at the highest level. Your generosity will assist these well-rounded young men who are prepared to lead both on and off the field.
Help us reach our fundraising goal of $30,000!
HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR CURRENT PLAYERS
"When I committed to Ohio University after going the Junior College route, I had no idea of the tradition and history that came with Ohio University Baseball. There is a special bond that comes with being a baseball player at the University, that I am very proud to be a part of. Whether you are taking the field at Bob Wren or walking the bricks of Court Street, there is no better feeling than repping that Ohio green. I am forever thankful for Ohio University and all the memories/friendships that have come with it. Thank you donors for your continued support of the program". -Brenden Roder
“Waking up every day with the privilege of putting on the green and white to represent Ohio University on the baseball field is special. Being a part of this Bobcat family gives us the great opportunity to go out there and compete for much more than our own names. We compete for this city, the alumni all over the country, the past players of this program, and one another on the field. This program would not be where it is today without all of those who supported and still continue to support us. It motivates us players to want to be better and work harder to give back to those who show all of the love and support”. - Nick Dolan
"I am forever thankful for Ohio University and all the memories/friendships that have come with it. It is truly a blessing that I get to wake up every day knowing that I am representing Ohio University Baseball. Putting that Jersey on is so much bigger than me. It means I get to play for all the players that came before me and all the people who have been a part of the program. Throughout my four years as a bobcat, I have learned so much more than just how to play the game the right way. I have learned how to deal with adversity to be able to be the best player I can be on the field. This is all due to the culture and relationships that I have made with my teammates and the coaching staff. Their ability to bring excitement and motivation to the program is what we pride ourselves on. Donations and other forms of support are great ways to keep the excitement in the program that allows us to be able to continue to grow the culture we have worked so hard to create. The memories I have made and the lessons I have learned as a bobcat are something I will carry with me forever. Thank you for your continued support"! - Alex Finney
