Become a WR Sponsor

WRBA Sponsorship Opportunities
West Raleigh Baseball was established in 1958. It is the preeminent youth baseball organization in the State of North Carolina. This is no exaggeration. West Raleigh is unique and very special for many reasons.

Reach: Every year West Raleigh serves about 1000 youth players ages 4 through 14 and their families. These families live and work throughout the Triangle and are very involved and influential citizens. The WR website receives over 100,000 views every year. Our bi-weekly newsletter goes to over 2000 families and our mailing list for events has over 5000 email addresses.

This is a Quality Program to be Associated With as a Sponsor: This incredibly successful program promotes teamwork, good sportsmanship, skill growth, healthy competition, and a strong sense of community and giving back.

On the Field: The unmatched instruction and development produces All-Star teams every summer that reach regional and national competitions, making it to 12 World Series events (both Ripken Baseball and PONY League) and have won 4 National Championships and one World Championship! Many of the players go on to play baseball in High School and College, and a few have gone on to the Majors.

Sportsmanship: The league prides itself for putting sportsmanship above everything. The biggest trophy every season, every year is for the League Sportsmanship Winner, and every team has a Team Sportsmanship Winner.

Giving Back: The league has every player and family participate in several charitable events such as:

• Vs. Cancer- WR raised $60,000 in 2014 to benefit kids with cancer
• Teams provide gift bags for delivery to the Duke Children's Hospital Pediatric Bone Marrow Unit
• Every team participates in Food Drives for the needy
• Players participate in the Miracle League, helping special needs kids play the game of baseball

WR is a 501c(3) non-profit organization and receives NO subsidies from any government or other organization. We are almost ALL volunteer and only able to provide our quality baseball program with the help of sponsors like you. Sponsorships go directly towards reducing registration costs and helping maintain our very old (but charming) facility located in greater Raleigh.

Your sponsorship goes directly to helping our kids and the community and you can be rest assured that your sponsorship money is going directly to the participants, not to the administration of the league. We feel this is important to our sponsors because of their desire to be socially responsible and to help people.
