Bronco Marathon - 100 Inning Baseball Game

Starting Monday, November 9th, 2020, the NMMI Bronco Baseball Team will begin its 9th annual Bronco Marathon - 100 Inning Baseball Game. This year, the 100 Inning Marathon will take place over a 5-day span. Your NMMI baseball player is asking you to consider making a “per inning” pledge for each of the 100 innings we will be playing. This event is vital to the baseball program. The money raised this fall will allow us to not only purchase necessary player equipment, it will also assist us in completing a long awaited facility campaign project. All raised funds go directly to the baseball program!

The Bronco Marathon will be conducted by splitting our team into two squads “Red” vs. “Black”. The rules of the game will include some modifications: Each team will hit for 15 consecutive outs, clearing the bases after every three. All hitters will start their at-bat with an 0-2 count. All players will hit in their respective line-up. A pitching machine and L-screen will be used; any batted ball that hits the L-screen will be a “do-over”.

Because of the success of last eight Bronco Marathon's, we've been able to provide EVERY player and manager with at least the following equipment: back pack, hoody, travel pants, cage jacket, fleece pullover, metal spikes, turfs, molded spikes, and a long sleeve shirt.

With the success of last year’s Alex Bregman autographed bat drawing, I will be personally donating one of my favorite baseball cards as a giveaway in this year’s marathon and facility campaign. For every $100 donated, you will receive one entry into a drawing to win a certified Willie Mays autographed 2001 Topps Archives Reserve Reprint ARA1. This card was personally pulled from a 2001 Topps Archives Reserve pack and can be found on Ebay or Amazon selling for up to $500. This card is in good condition and has not been graded.

*Drawing for the Willie Mays Autograph baseball card will be held on November 20th, 2020. All donations over $100 will receive 1 entry per $100 donated through the facility campaign or marathon game.

As mentioned previously, any remaining raised funds from this year’s marathon will be put to good use helping our program complete a new facility upgrade. The batting cage area at the NMMI Baseball Complex will be expanded and covered by a steel building measuring 16’ tall x 40’ wide x 85’ long. This covered structure will include larger and safer batting cage nets, new protective screens, new ball carts, and eventually indoor pitching mounds. Both pitchers and hitters will be able to take advantage of the facility during inclement weather. The only part of this project that hasn’t been completed is the construction of the building itself!
