MURRAY, KY - Varsity Scoreboards, one of the leading scoreboard manufacturers in America, recently signed a licensing agreement with Little League Baseball and Softball, Varsity Scoreboards CEO Mike Daniel announced today.
“We are very excited to become a licensed supplier for one of the most iconic brands in all of American sports,” Daniel said of the agreement. “Our scoreboards are in parks all across the country and we look forward to expanding our presence with Little League Baseball and Softball.”
Founded in 1939, Little League® Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with millions of players and more than one million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and more than 80 other countries. Each year, millions of people follow the hard work, dedication, and sportsmanship that Little Leaguers® display at the seven baseball and softball World Series events, the premier tournaments in youth sports.
Though Varsity Scoreboards is recognized as one of the leading scoreboard suppliers for collegiate and high school sports, Daniel said the company has always had a passion and commitment at the youth sports level. “This company began more than 30 years ago by selling small, portable scoreboards to youth sports associations, so we always welcome the opportunity to continue to play a role in youth sports.”
Varsity Scoreboards has been named the Official Scoreboard Partner for the Babe Ruth League.
Varsity Scoreboards, one of the largest scoreboard manufacturers in the country, will provide Babe Ruth League coaches, players, and fans with professional looking scoreboards during their games. Leagues will benefit from the great customer service and factory direct pricing.
As the Official Scoreboard, Varsity will also be implementing a grant program for Babe Ruth League’s that are in need of new scoreboards. (Annually, five recipients will be awarded a $3,000 grant towards a scoreboard of their choosing. Varsity Scoreboards is excited to be able to offer these grants to communities and facilities throughout the country and cannot wait to see what impact they will have on the programs that are selected.) As a part of this grant program, the first grant was awarded to the host of the Cal Ripken Major70 World Series, Branson, MO and Ballparks of America. The brand new 16’ x 9’ video board will make its debut in the upcoming broadcasts on Stadium from August 2-10. For more information on how to watch, go to http://watchstadium.com.
“Varsity Scoreboards is proud to partner with the Babe Ruth League”, says Business Development Director, Janson James. “We have a longstanding commitment to youth sports and partnering with a premier league such as this is an honor. We look forward to being a part of the Cal Ripken Major70 World Series and hope this event kicks off a great start to a partnership that leads us with ability to reach and support youth baseball in ways that we have not been able to in the past.”
“We realize our leagues rely heavily on the services and products offered by Babe Ruth League. This is why we work hard to make sure we have them covered at home plate,” said Steven Tellefsen, President/CEO for Babe Ruth League, Inc. “Varsity Scoreboards is an industry leader in the youth baseball and softball arena. We are honored to team up with Varsity to help keep the costs for our affiliated leagues to a minimum and to provide unparalleled benefits and resources to every member of the Babe Ruth family.”
