The Wabash Valley College Baseball Team is regularly ranked #1 overall in the NJCAA and is seeking to improve its facilities to align with the skill and talent of this leading national program.
With over 50 athletes, a large amount of equipment and multiple uniforms, our players need a space they can comfortably use to store their belongings, change clothes, and prepare. On average, a baseball player in our program totes around two bats, two gloves, two pairs of shoes, and multiple gear and equipment accessories related to the game. On top of equipment, they have multiple uniform combinations for both practice and games that are required. We are raising money to construct a clubhouse at Fournier Field for our team.
The Wabash Valley College Baseball program is seeking to construct a locker room to improve the overall student-athlete experience for its players. This initiative is intended to provide the players a safe and functional gathering and storage space that will also serve as a place of camaraderie for the team. Nearly every junior college in our region has a clubhouse area for their players — including the programs in our IECC District — and we are hopeful to add one to our program.
“After suffering an arm injury my junior year of high school, I thought that my hopes of playing college baseball were done. That’s when the coaching staff at Wabash Valley stepped in and took a chance on me. Since being here I’ve only gotten better and closer to achieving all of my goals. They have pushed me day in and day out to be the best version of myself and without them and this program I wouldn’t be where I am today as a player or a person. They have supported me on and off the field, with my commitment, and my dreams of playing professional baseball. Along with growing as a person, the relationships I’ve made over the past two years have been second to none. Without WVC being in my life, wouldn’t be where I need to be or going where I need to go”

The most cost effective way to achieve this is to construct a metal building big enough to house 45 open-faced team lockers. This requires a concrete foundation, carpet flooring, insulation, lighting and electricity. Our plan is to line the perimeter of the building with the lockers while creating a common area for seating in the middle.
