Join forces with Bridgehampton National Bank, Hampton Jitney, Emil Norsic and Son, Inc. to bring world class collegiate baseball games to the East End

Ahh, the sights and sounds of summer….a warm evening, a local baseball field, friends and neighbors. The crack of a bat, shouts from the crowds, young and old cheering together…the familiar sound of our towns each summer as the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League brings us together. Seven teams, seven towns. All connected.
Each summer, 200 players arrive from division 1 and 2 colleges nationwide to competitively play ball, coach more than 30 free baseball clinics, and volunteer with local nonprofits. They stay in our homes, teach and inspire our kids, and make summer in the Hamptons just a little more real.

How this project makes a difference

150 games are played over the course of June and July. All are open to the public, and all are free!
This goodcircle project will fund game days – including the players’ transportation to and from the games, their uniforms, and the cost of the umpires. No small ticket – more than $185,000. But thanks to the generosity of Hampton Jitney, BNB, NORSIC (and with help from MLB), the majority of the expenses are covered. We need your help to close the gap – $27,850 to be precise.

Our Goal

To make summer in The Hamptons more fun.

Good people. Good business.

From Geoff Lynch, President of Hampton Jitney “It’s integral to our business to give back. We look for community based East End centric non-profits. Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League is totally integrated into the community in lots of ways. We value our long standing partnership with them and are pleased to be spreading the word about this great organization through goodcircle.”
