Gem City Thunder

Hello, Gem City Thunder fans! 
The Gem City Baseball Association was started as a new, non-profit, community serving, youth mentoring organization in May 2013.  The Gem City Thunder is a collegiate summer league baseball team that will provide entertainment to the community and support the mission of the Gem City Baseball Association beginning in 2014.  

Schedule and Roster - The 2014 Thunder schedule is finalized!  Please see the attachment with our game dates and times.  We have 40 games on the schedule and fans will see nine different opponents in Laramie at Cowboy Field.  We hope that you will come out to the ball park and experience quality collegiate summer baseball with us!  Our full roster is almost complete and will be released very soon.  Fans who follow us on Facebook or check out our website regularly can already see player bios that have been released.  New bios are posted often.  We hope you will get to know our 2014 team!
Host Homes Needed!  Do you have a spare bedroom that you could offer to a college baseball player?  We are in need of homes for our players to live in while they are here this summer.  Host homes are paid a stipend of $100/month for June and July to help offset extra costs.  Hosts are expected to provide room and board to their player and we hope the player will be treated as an adult child in your home.  Hosting a player is a very rewarding experience and a VERY large part of a successful and exciting summer for our players.  For questions please contact Waiva, our Host Home Coordinator and Player Liaison, at .  Visit the Host Home FAQ and sign-up sheet.
Upcoming Events -
The GCBA and Gem City Thunder will host youth clinics throughout the summer, a "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" brunch and social for women to learn about the game of baseball from the players and coaches themselves, and a special pajama and breakfast game at 9am on June 21st.  The Thunder players also need community events to participate in this summer!  If you know of an event or organization that the Thunder can become involved with please contact us at .
Social Media - Please follow us on Twitter @GemCityBaseball and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GemCityThunder to get the most up-to-date information and exciting announcements from the GCBA and Gem City Thunder!
The mission of the Gem City Baseball Association is to facilitate a community-sponsored competitive collegiate summer baseball team that will provide affordable family fun, mentoring for Laramie’s youth baseball programs, create and participate in community service projects, and foster skills development for participating athletes who will return to compete in their various national collegiate baseball programs. 
We welcome all questions and suggestions and are willing to talk with any individual or group about our exciting organization.  We appreciate your support and hope to be an active part of the Laramie community!
