Longhorn Club Baseball

Longhorn Club Baseball

     We are the Longhorn Club Baseball team. Our organization serves an opportunity for students at the University of Texas to continue playing the sport of baseball throughout their college careers. The club is a member of the National Club Baseball Association (NCBA), and competes with Division I club programs across the country. Some of our main competitors include Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Tulane University to name a few. Since the club's founding in 1991, the club has grown into a well respected organization at UT, and continues to serve as a way for student-athletes to compete, work hard, and play ball.

     Currently, our club practices four times a week in the evenings after classes, and we play our official games on the weekends throughout the spring and fall. The club is responsible for negotiating field and umpire contracts throughout the season. As a result, we often change fields for practice and games. 

Field Struggles

     Throughout the past 3-4 years, the team has struggled to lock down a permanent practice field as well as a local game field. Due to increasing prices in Austin, field rentals have become very expensive and we are often outbid by local adult weekend leagues as well as some junior colleges. Our team has currently been practicing at a field at Edward Rendon Sr. Park, but the field is lacking an appropriate pitching mound. We need YOUR help. With your donation, we will be able to afford the practice field as well as start saving for purchasing a portable mound that we can take to practice for our pitchers. 

     We are also working with a local field for games on the weekends. The cost will be between $400-450 for a full weekend of games. Since the field is closer to the university and is well groomed, we hope to secure the contract for the following season. So please make your GIFT today!

Thank You

     Thank you for taking the time to learn about our organization. Your donation has the ability to help the team to lock down permanent homes for both our practices and games and would be greatly appreciated! With your help, our club will continue to help young men come together and play the sport they love at UT Austin!
