Help: Softball Sponsorship Questions
Im starting a community softball team with my coworkers, friends and girlfriends dad (who played college ball and traveling semi-pro teams). I got 12 players that are going to play every game and pay their portion. My league costs 1600$, most of the guys I got are washed up baseball players from high school and college. Im pretty sure were going to have a great team but we dont all have money since some of them are pieces of sh*t, washed up from partying and trying to live the sports player dream. Im not trying to throw down the money for the guys that cant come up with it. I was talking to an older guy at my gym about softball and he was telling me I could get a sponsorship from a local bar/ restaurant. He told me some places love sponsoring community softball teams since they get their name on the players jerseys and its making to town money. He said to promise the bar owner that the team will come in for wings and drinks after game and have a few team meetings at the bar that decides to sponsor us. I get all of this but I dont know how to ask for money. I feel like a guy standing on the corner with a coffee can. There has to be a way that is more professional, right?
Jersey name and number for sub jerseys
I wanna get two extra jerseys with a funny name and number for the sub or subs. You guys have anything good?
I was thinking something like "i need money" or "masterb" #8
The sub is gonna be one of the guys i wanted on my team originally and backed out due to financial trouble. Everyone knows a guy like this. So now he shows up when we need him for free. So the sub name should be something funny and kind of embarrassing.
Lets hear it guys..
