Sponsor A Player

One of the realities of playing competitive baseball and softball, is it can be very costly for players to participate.  Player fees are charged to each player to cover costs associated with league and tournament fees, team equipment, insurance, gate fees, umpire fees, and organizational expenses such as facility rental and maintenance. 

Because the positives of participating in competitive baseball and softball can be very rewarding for a young player, and the Chicago Mudcats do not want to deny any talented youth with the opportunity to compete. Therefore, any given season, the Chicago Mudcats offer ten-to-twenty full and partial scholarships to talented players who could otherwise not afford to participate in our programming. Full scholarships range from $1,000 to $2,100 per player dependent upon age level and sport (please see the table below for the breakdown) and cover all season expenses. Partial scholarships are also available and can range from one to three quarters of season fees.
