“We’re looking forward to rewarding not only great ball players, but also great students and people.” Baxter said. “You can’t win it if you don’t apply, so don’t miss out.” 

One of our previous recipients, Mike Nikorak, was a first round selection by the Colorado Rockies in the 2015 MLB Draft pick.

Zoned has been able to expand this scholarship program over the last two years, with help from the Zoned Scholarship Scramble Golf Outing, which will take place this year on Oct. 16 at NJ National. Zoned’s give back philosophy includes not only the college scholarships, but als, scholarships for student-athletes who need assistance with team fees and travel expenses to participate in its elite travel baseball program, the RedHawks, which ranges from 9U to 17U.

In addition, Zoned has supported underfunded local little league programs, renovations for local baseball fields and has held multiple fundraising and charity events at its Bridgewater facility.

Zoned Sports Academy is a 28,000-square-foot state-of-the-art sports training facility offering training clinics, private lessons, camps and special events. Zoned trains athletes as young as 5 years old through high school, and provides them with not only baseball and softball skills, but critical life values as well, such as sportsmanship, hard work, integrity and respect.
