Pagosa Springs High School Boys Baseball Need You!
Leanne Goebel | 3/18/13
Back to the News Summaries

 Boy's baseball practice has started. But in Pagosa Springs, Colo. the baseball field is covered in several feet of snow; the only place the team can play is a patch of plowed asphalt parking lot where they lay out bases and field grounders. Home plate is beneath a light pole near a snow plow. Batting practice happens in a small gym at the Junior High. When the snow does melt the fence around the Pirates baseball field curls up since it was never tied down properly and the PA system doesn’t work.

The budget for boys’ baseball at Pagosa Springs High School has decreased by $4,804 since FY2010. The supply budget barely covers the cost of game balls and there is no money allotted for equipment. The batting cage is falling down, the team has no L screen for safety, their helmet bag is falling apart and it would be nice to have hooded sweatshirts for the players and jackets for the coaches. The team can't even afford the required baseball caps and most parents are working poor.  The per capita personal income in our County is $29,344, which ranks 55th in the state and is 70% of the state average. Our school district enrollment has declined from a high in 2005 of 1,634 students to a current 1,360. At the high school we’ve gone from 531 students to 411. Yet nearly two dozen boys want to play baseball and several dream of playing in college and beyond.

We have raised $1,345 on the website and I have $130 in promised cash donations. We are halfway there!
