In collaboration with BaseballMapper.com, we aim to promote the game of baseball in local communities with our "Support Local Baseball" collection.
When you visit your local ballpark, buy merchandise, shop a local baseball business, you are playing vital role in supporting baseball in your community. Without the fans, baseball in your community doesn't exist
Tell a friend, post on social media, be a loud and proud supporter of baseball in your community. Spread the word and grow the game.
Most importantly of all, get out and enjoy local baseball. Smell the peanuts and the Cracker Jack. Root, root, root for the home team. But hey, we know you care if you come back.

WHAT DOES SUPPORT LOCAL BASEBALL MEAN TO YOU?
"Local baseball is all about community to me. Ballparks are community spaces. When we sit next to people we don't know at a ballpark, we rely on them to yield to us when we need to get up from our seats, or to pass a hot dog down the aisle, and we cheer with common purpose for the home team. Merely being near other people at a local baseball game unites us. Our local ballparks serves as a pub for adults, a playground for children, and a place to dream for up and coming ballplayers. A place to work, a place to see, and be seen, the purpose of a local ballpark goes far beyond the game played between the lines."

Over 20 years ago, Cory and Patrick first met at a pizza shop, working up a sweat during busy nights in the northern Chicago suburbs. In the years that followed, the two long-time friends would always spend time discussing ways they could possibly alter their career paths on a joint business venture. Ironically, it would turn out to be one of their shared passions that would open the door to this great “work” opportunity.
However, they would stumble upon this project organically one year while planning the annual baseball trip for their group of friends. They were looking for local baseball teams in the area of the trip when the muse struck them. What if there was a website to make that type of planning easier? The idea was born and what started as a tool to help themselves out became a great opportunity to share with the world.
