As the 8th head baseball coach at Western Michigan University, I would like to invite you to become a vital part of Bronco baseball. It is our goal to build on the foundation in place and use new resources to take our program to even greater heights. Having many goals and plans, we must provide student-athletes the best opportunity for sustainable success.

As we continue to raise the bar on what we provide our players, we can in turn expect a greater commitment on their part. This culture is what leads to improved results both in the classroom and on the field. In order to provide these resources for our student athletes, we need your involvement.

Financial support from the Bronco Baseball Dugout Club goes straight to our baseball Excellence Fund and directly benefits the future of Bronco baseball. Our players work very hard, and it is my goal for them to get all of the support necessary to be champions on and off the field.

Those of you that played and/or support the program realize the needs and challenges of meeting the standards along with raising the bar. We have several projects that will improve the overall experience for our players. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read this message.

My wife and I have been donors since I was hired and whether you are a former player, parent or fan, we would love for you to be a part of the next chapter of Bronco baseball.

Thank You again for your continued support of OUR Bronco Baseball Program.

With Tremendous Bronco Pride,
Billy Gernon
