Pitt Club Baseball (PCB) is a student run organization competing in Division I of the National Club Baseball Association. In both the fall and spring each year, we compete against teams from around the North Atlantic region, as well teams from all over the country. Each season, we aspire to secure a North Atlantic Region Tournament berth on our way to a World Series run. Our club was North Atlantic Western Conference Champions from 2013-2017 and earned World Series appearances in 2012 & 2016.
In 2019, we finished conference play with a 9-6 record, narrowly missing out on an at-large bid to regionals. After fall play, we enter 2020 with a conference leading 4-2 record and look to solidify our place at the top of the standings this spring.
As a student-run club team, we strive resemble a varsity program in many aspects. But there is one major difference: the club gets a limited amount of monetary support from the university. This year, Pitt made the switch back to the school’s classic colors of royal blue and university yellow. Club organizations like ours were given a two-year window to integrate the new colors into our jerseys, logos, social media sites, and team gear. We decided to make the switch immediately, and we’d say the new look came out pretty well!
This uniform switch was costly, and it only added to our already long list of expenses including equipment, field rentals, umpires, transportation, and lodging costs when we travel to compete against other schools. We rely on player dues and fundraisers to cover our costs, but as our club continues to grow and become increasingly successful, expenses increase and there is greater need for financial support from outside sources.
