Missoula Mavericks-American Legion Baseball Program
The Missoula Mavericks program is the Legion baseball program for area young men from all high schools in the Missoula valley including Sentinel, Hellgate, Big Sky, Loyola and Valley Christian. The program also serves players from the surrounding communities including Frenchtown and lower Flathead valley. It’s an elite program and positions on the Mavericks teams are highly competitive.
Mavericks players are given the opportunity to excel in a sport they love, compete at the highest level, make new friends and have a lot of fun in the process. In return, they are required to make a commitment to work hard, do the best they can, and conduct themselves in ways upholding the reputation of the Mavericks Baseball Organization and the Missoula Community.
The Missoula Legion baseball program is managed by the Mavericks Legion Baseball Program; a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Its board is elected by its membership, which includes parents and interested citizens from throughout the community dedicated to the support of Legion baseball.
Each year, this association of people also raises and administers necessary funding for the program costs such as equipment and uniforms, team travel, coaching, contracts, concessions, team insurance and registration, advertising and promotion, bookkeeping, and other activities necessary to operate the program. These costs will total more than $225,000 for the 2016 season.
Clearly, the program would not be possible without the generosity of the literally hundreds of businesses and individuals in the Missoula community who support Mavericks baseball. Please note those supporting the Mavericks – as player sponsors, advertisers in our program, outfield signage, and major corporate sponsors – and thank them in any way you can. Be sure to mention the Mavs, so they know their ad is working. The entire Missoula Mavericks organization – players, coaches, parents, supporters and board members – work hard to earn this support.
Mavericks Baseball also is supported by the local American Legion Hellgate Post #27. The post serves as the Legion sponsor of the Mavericks and is the lease-holder of the field where Legion baseball is played.
The entire Mavericks Baseball organization is dedicated to keeping the program the very best that it can be.
Thank you to our board members for all of their time, energy & great community involvement!
