Just Bat Reviews Scholarship
Here at Just Bat Reviews we have relished the chance to combine two of our greatest passions—writing and baseball. We credit this opportunity to our years playing competitive sports and the expansive experience of a college education. In hopes of inspiring future students to incorporate their passion for baseball into their college education, Just Bat Reviews is excited to offer a $750 equipment scholarship.
This scholarship is for college students who are playing, or have children playing, collegiate, intramural, high school or recreational baseball. We will use our inventory, and host of industry contacts to provide you with the best equipment available to fit your size and sport.

Also, please submit a 200 word write up as to why you should be chosen.
Note: Plagiarized material, which we will check for, is a very bad idea.
Submitted essays, or portions thereof, may be incorporated into relevant JBR articles, with credit given to the author, of course. After you have completed the essay, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for essay submission is December 30th, 2017
