The Shippensburg Community Parks and Recreation Authority is entering its second year providing suburban baseball and softball programs to the Shippensburg area. We look forward to rostering 5 baseball and 5 softball teams in 2017. Our program is part of the Chambersburg Suburban League, which includes 23 surrounding communities. The season begins on April 24, 2017 and runs to the beginning of July. Home games are played at Shippensburg Memorial Park and away games are played in the participating communities.
Playing in the Chambersburg Suburban League, gives our athletes the exposure of playing teams from outside Shippensburg. The level of competition ranges from recreational to advanced, and allows the players to get the most out of the season. Last year, we had one baseball team place second in the league, and one softball team make it to the second round of playoffs. After the season, players can try out for an all-star team to play in additional tournaments. Shippensburg had two baseball players and two softball players that made the teams.
To provide these opportunities for our youth, assistance is needed from the community. This year we are seeking sponsorships to help offset the costs involved in offering these programs. Your sponsorship of $300.00 will contribute to the purchase of new bats, helmets, catcher’s gear, uniforms, field bases, field mix, and other needs that may arise. In return, your business will appear on the back of the uniforms, be listed on our website and submitted to the local newspapers. Your Support is greatly appreciated. If you would like to sponsor a team, please make checks payable to SCPRA (Shippensburg Community Parks and Recreation Authority) and send to 677 Orrstown Road, Shippensburg PA 17257. If you have any questions, please contact us at (717) 530-0261. Your time and support are greatly appreciated by our community.
