According to the Website, $237,111.09 has been raised thus far to save the University of Northern Iowa baseball program from extinction.

The school announced last month that baseball would be chopped because of a cut in state funding this year. The only way to save the program for three years, is to raise $1.2 million by April 5. has a list of donors and how much they have donated. Perfect Game USA baseball club in Cedar Rapids has pledged $25,000. Anonymous donors have pledged $65,455.

Maybe the UNI men’s basketball team can use its national platform this week at the NCAA tournament to help raise awareness of what could happen to its baseball brethren. Just a thought.
