SLA Rockets Baseball Family and Bandwagon,
We shocked the Philly Public League last year by going undefeated in the regular season and upsetting the top seeds en route to the Final Four.
Yet, we fell ever so short of fulfilling our mission of bringing home a City Title. Now the target is squarely on our backs as a team to beat, and every game we play this spring will be against the very best around.
Since the first week of September we've been building on the strong foundation of our recent success, but we're still up against teams and a system that favors the established and the fully staffed. We'll always be that scrappy, royal blue Rocket that believes and defies the odds but we need your help.
To this end, we're starting this GoFundMe campaign to ensure that our team is ready to compete against the very best the city has to offer in 2016.
Your support will help us in the following ways:
-Professional Hitting and Pitching Coaches
-Indoor Facility Rentals
-New baseball equipment
-Spring Training Tournaments down South
Help support the continued growth of the hottest team in the City Public League.
City Title on 3, Family on 6!!!
