This event is raise funds for the Dinos Baseball Club. The UofC Baseball Program is set-up to assist us in our ambition to go to College or University and play competitive college baseball. The Dinos program was accepted as the fifth team in the Canadian Collegiate Baseball
Conference (CCBC) in the spring of 2004. The CCBC is Canada’s premiere college baseball conference which has established itself and become a well-respected conference for Canadian athletes to begin their college careers.
Since the program was started in the fall of 2000 the program has strived to achieve not only success on the field, but also off the field as well. In order for me to be able to play for the Dinos I must be a full-time student and maintain a high academic standard. We attend UofC and have practice daily. The University of Calgary Dinos Baseball Club is a member of the Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC). The CCBC is a 5 team Canadian College Conference which includes the Prairie Baseball Academy (Lethbridge, AB), Thompson Rivers University (Kamloops, BC), VIBI (Malaspina, BC), Okanagan College (Kelowna, BC) and the UofC Dinos. Our program competes in both a fall and spring wood bat season of on average 80 games during the school year. The fall exhibition season begins early September and is completed at the end of November. The spring conference season begins the first week back to school in January and ends with the CCBC Championship during the middle of May. This year our season starts with 3 weekend trips to Washington State. We play our home games out of Foothills Stadium, the former home of the Professional Calgary Vipers. In the winter we spend our time working out and practicing indoors at the Absolute Baseball Academy.
The University of Calgary Baseball Club raises funds in order to sustain itself in many different ways. The local private sector has been very supportive with donations. We run baseball camps for the local youth players and have an annual banquet. Dinos players are learning there is much more to a baseball program than practicing and playing games.
