collegiate baseball program was dropped as a Division I sport at Colorado State, the
Rams Club Baseball Team was immediately accepted as a club sport. The main difference
between the Division I program and a club sport is the budget. As a club sport,
the team receives a limited annual budget from the University. The majority of the
team’s funds are generated by the players and coaching staff through fundraising
activities and fees. Reasons such as Title IX, lack of financial assistance
from univeristies, and the growth of other sports have forced many univeristies
(such as CSU and CU) to cut their varsity baseball programs. The creation
of club teams at these universities have helped to fill the void.
Education is the number one priority at Colorado State University, however, the
coaching staff expects a major commitment to this quality baseball program. The
team practices daily between 3:30 and 6:00pm throughout the academic year in both
the spring and the fall and classes should be scheduled around this time. Double
headers are played on the weekends while occasionally games are scheduled on weekdays
during practice time. The baseball season is split into a fall and a spring season.
State Baseball plays an average of about 25 games in the fall and 50-60 games throughout
the spring season. The team is part of the Mid-America West Conference along
with the University of Colorado, the University of Northern Colorado, and the University
of Colorado at Colorado Springs. The team also plays numerous Junior Colleges
in the area such as Lamar, Otero, Western Nebraska, and Trinidad State.
The State Baseball team consists of young men who love to play baseball, are committed
to a program of excellence, dedicated to doing their individual best, while being
an integral part of a hard-working cohesive team, and are able to have fun while
holding their competitive edge. To maintain the success of the program, top quality,
highly motivated individuals are needed. Currently, there are several players who
have contributed to successful NCAA and Junior College teams. The Colorado State
baseball team provides an excellent opportunity for students wishing to further
their baseball career while getting a quality CSU education.
