WHAT IS THE HOME RUN CLUB?
The New Mexico State University Home Run Club is a simple, yet fun way to support the Aggie baseball program…with exciting possibilities during every at-bat. Members of the Home Run Club will agree to donate a specific dollar amount for every round-tripper hit by the Aggies during the season (# of home runs x pledge amount = total donation). All donations received through the Home Run Club will be earmarked for the improvement of Presley Askew Field.
Donations to the Home Run Club may qualify for a tax deduction. Please contact your tax advisor for specific information.
Letter from Gary Ward - Director, NMSU Homerun Club
The New Mexico State Aggie Baseball Team has competed at the National Level over the last few seasons. It has produced several All-Americans and professional baseball signees while receiving national rankings and participating in the NCAA-DI Regional Playoffs. The Aggie Team and individual players are found among the nation's leaders in several statistical categories.
To continue this unprecedented success, it is time to upgrade the player and fan facilities at Presley Askew Field. There is an immediate and urgent need for both short and long term planning that will meet the needs of the future in Aggie Baseball.
I have agreed to serve as a consultant/fundraiser to the NMSU Athletics Department and to represent administrative and athletic department leadership. NMSU architects and I are preparing plans that represent several hundred thousand dollars of improvements and most of the revenue has been pledged for completion of this project. Please join us by becoming an NMSU Home Run Club Member. Your commitment would reward Aggie players and coaches for their recent excellence on the field and inspire future teams.
Dare to dream. Greatness is a lonely path and those who achieve it leave deeply embedded clues throughout the journey. The most important residue of success is that those who are involved are totally invested in the primary goal. The NCAA playoffs (and a chance to play in the College World Series) becomes a realistic goal when the coaches, players, fans, donors, alumni, and institutional administrators share the dream.
The NMSU Home Run Club will provide many of us with the opportunity to "Step Up To The Plate." Please join me now with a renewed enthusiasm and a look to the future.
Gary H. Ward
