Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Signs & Engraving Company

The first day of spring has arrived! It is a time of renewal for everyone.  It marks the end of a period of dormancy as the trees begin to bud new leaves and flowers pop up everywhere. As you look around you can see children begin to play outside again and pretty soon lawns will begin to be manicured. For many it is the perfect time of year because summer sports teams begin to form. Many small businesses across America take this time to sponsor little league teams in their towns. Sponsoring a ball team is a wonderful way to give back to the community by giving local children the chance to be part of something they will always remember; or providing the backdrop for churches and civic organizations to get together. From sitting on the bleachers watching the diamond being prepared for the game to seeing the sun go down behind the scoreboard, there is nothing like a small town ball game!

Sponsoring a ball team has many benefits for the business owner as well. It gives the small business a chance to make their name well known. The team t-shirt and ball caps often bear the company’s logo or slogan, or maybe even a photo of the store. It is the advertisement that shows off for the entire summer and beyond. The team and their families may even frequent a sponsoring restaurant after the game for a celebratory meal bringing many of the spectators with them. Promotional t shirts are like walking billboards for your business or event! Event participants, staff members, sports teams, restaurant patrons alike. Everyone loves having custom t shirts to remind them of your organization. It keeps them comfortable and keeps them wanting more!

Many leagues use outfield fence signs to recognize sponsors, as long as the signs are permitted by local laws and ordinances.  Through their research, Dr. Ed Mayo, professor emeritus of marketing, together with Dobb Mayo (Gazillion & One Advertising) indicates that the average baseball fan will look up to 300 times at a scoreboard during a game—as well as the advertising signage around it—but each glance is only a second or two long. They point out that the most effective ballpark advertising signs today usually don’t try to communicate much more than the advertiser’s brand name and logo.
