PlayFamously Scholarship – School Money for Baseball and Softball Players

PlayFamously Scholarship

Here at PlayFamously we have relished the chance to combine two of our greatest passions—writing, baseball and softball. We credit this opportunity to our years playing competitive sports and the expansive experience of a college education. In hopes of inspiring future students to incorporate their passion for baseball as well as softball into their college education, PlayFamously is excited to offer a $750 equipment scholarship. Maybe use it to buy one of the best bats or ball gloves?

This scholarship is for college students who are playing, or have children playing, collegiate, intramural, high school, recreational baseball or travel softball. We will use our inventory, and host of industry contacts to provide you with the best equipment available to fit your size and sport.
