St. Thomas Minor Baseball would like to recognize our major program sponsors.
|St. Thomas Optimist Club
In 2006, the St. Thomas Optimist Club donated $14,000 to purchase new shirts and baseball hats for our Association. In addition, each year for the past 12 years, the Optimist Club donates $1000 annually to purchase replacement uniforms in an annual maintenance donation.
|Centennial Sports Club
Over the past several years, the Centennial Sports Club has made several donations toward Minor Baseball. They sponsor our tournament, our house league program, and were a major sponsor in the development of the Sauve Avenue baseball complex. In 2007, St. Thomas Minor Baseball recognized the Centennial Sports Club by officially having the baseball complex on Sauve Avenue named the "Centennial Sports Club Minor Baseball Complex".
|Bell Community Sport Fund
In 2008, the Bell True Sport Foundation donated a grant in the amount of $5000 to STMBA. Proceeds from this grant were used to purchase 6 sets of drop in bases for The Centennial Sports Club Minor Baseball Complex (4 diamonds), New York Central, and Burwell Road. Also, a portion was used to purchase a batting practice cage (turtle) and base screens for Emslie Field.
Messenger Delivery Service
In 2008, Messenger Delivery Service assisted STMBA in making a donation to our program to contribute funds for purchasing 3 new powered pitching machines for our rookie ball house league and competitive programs. STMBA purchased the machines for the start of the 2008 season.

In September of 2008, The Trillium Foundation donated a grant in the amount of $22,000 to STMBA.
