  Semi-Pro Teams Past and Present: How to take your Team from Average to Greatness!  

Thursday, January 30
How to take your Team from Average to Greatness!
Over the years Semi-Pro Teams have started up and folded like the latest of new fads. This will be my 14th season in the Semi-Pro Game.
Here is a list of things that will help make your Team better and last longer.

Uniforms- although they can be expensive try to have a 2nd set or atleast a 2nd top. Cost savings can be Plain White or Gray Pants with Belt Loops Make your Players buy thier own Belts & Socks
If you wear T-Shirts try to get a sponsor for the sleeve or both sleeves or the back this will help offset the cost. If you have nice button down or sleeveless Tops collect them after each game makes it alot easier to keep track of them.

Bottom Line atleast if you don't play good you'll look good!

WebSite: In this day and age it is totaly rediculous not to have a Team Website or provide free websites to teams and leagues all it takes is a little time to add info on your team. It is also a great source for other Teams to find you.

Volunteers: It never hurts to have people help you out form Booster Clubs alot of Older Retiree's would love to help out if asked. Don't try to do everything yourself be prepared.

Fundraising: We all know that Baseball is expensive! Sell advertising whether its 1 banner or a whole fence filled with signs, charge player fee's charge admission put together programs or posters charge admission, do half pots, sell T-Shirts & Hats , do concessions, yard sales, dinner/dances cook-outs and golf scrambles.

Anything helps I've found that over the years it is more profitable to use your Towns name example (Burlington Bobcats) as opposed to (Burger King Bobcats)

Publicity: Always call your scores into the paper or Radio or TV stations the more people know about you the more people will come to your games.

Outside competition: Very important Always schedule a few extra games outside your league, Go to some Regional or Holiday Tournaments. A great Semi-Pro Team will play 4 games every week-end this will develop your pitching staff especially when it comes to tournament time and you need to go past your #1 or #2.

Email any ?'s you have to   I'll give the best advice I have to make your program better.
