Saints Baseball Board
St Rita’s is the Saints Youth Baseball Program’s indoor practice facility. It was started back in 2008 and moved to our existing location in Hiawatha after a flooding event at the old facility. The facility has 7 totals cages that can be used for hitting, tee work and pitching.
Several people have inquired about how the facility is funded and where does the funds for St Rita’s go.
- Who owns St Rita’s – All the Saints members who pay the St Rita’s dues are “owners” of the facility we rent. The facility is made possible by the dues our members pay.
- Rent* – ~85% of our total St Rita’s dues goes to pay the rent for the facility
- New Equipment / Repair Equipment* – The remaining ~15% of our St Rita’s dues goes to purchasing new equipment (ie baseballs, tees etc) or repairing our existing equipment and the facility (ie pitching machines, cage nets etc). Our facility will be in need for new carpeting in the next few years which will be a large expense for the facility.
Thanks to everyone for the continued support for St Rita’s. Without your support Saints Baseball would not be in a position to have such an excellent facility as St Rita’s.
