The addition of a Baseball Team will further build the UC Merced community, offering another avenue of opportunity for its students. Furthermore, it will encourage the local community, schools and kids to get more involved. Financially, the Baseball program will give back, just as much as it may need to take in. Overall, it will be a major addition and will prove to be beneficial for all who attend UC Merced.
