Purdue Club Baseball is a student-run organization and is officially recognized by Purdue Club Sports. We participate in intercollegiate athletic competition and provide students the opportunity to continue to their baseball careers at a collegiate level.
We are proud to be a part of the National College Baseball Association (NCBA), which includes club baseball teams from more than 280 colleges and universities across the country. We compete in the NCBA's Division I tier, the most competitive club league available. In this tier, we have been nationally ranked multiple times, getting all the way up to #6 in the country during the Spring 2016 season. Click here to visit the official NCBA website.
Purdue Club Baseball is a Division I team that competes in the Great Lakes South Conference. Our conference teams include Indiana, Illinois, Notre Dame, Ball State, and Illinois State. We also play several non-conference games throughout the course of the season too. We have played teams like Michigan State, Dayton, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Central Florida, Rose-Hulman, Wabash, and are always looking to play more.
Purdue Club Baseball is active throughout the entire academic school year. Tryouts are held within the first couple weeks of the Fall semester, and our Fall season begins shortly after. We play other club teams on weekends and will practice 2-3 times per week through October. We will also schedule a Fall tournament to reach out and play new teams and good competition.
In the winter, pitchers are put on a throwing program and players will get in reps indoors at Purdue's Turf Recreation Exercise Center (TREC). We practice as a team indoors until it is nice enough to go back outside.
The NCBA conference schedule starts in the Spring and continues throughout May. Over Spring Break we will travel to Tampa, FL to play teams across the nation in the NCBA Spring Training Showcase at Mike Sansone Park. Moving forward, winning conference and regional championships will advance us to the NCBA World Series.
If you have any questions or would like to tryout, contact Nick Ricther at email@example.com or Elijah Sicklick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
