Team BOB to Raise Funds for More Ballparks

Posted by on Jul 19 in Build Our Ballpark

The Build Our Ballpark Board of Directors and staff are thrilled to announce that Team BOB will again be riding RAGBRAI to raise funds for our nonprofit organization building baseball/softball parks throughout America.

Eight cyclists from across the United States will ride 454 miles across the great state of Iowa. As the cyclists come together for this historic ride, they will capture a glimpse of Iowa life and how the Midwest is keeping the spirit of baseball alive in the local communities. Along the route they plan to visit area baseball and softball fields, chat with Iowa youth about their passion for the game, and maybe even get involved in some friendly competition on the fields.

Last year the team raised more than $100,000! With that money, Build Our Ballpark was able to refurbish five baseball fields in the Midwest.
