adding hundreds more dollars per tournament! BFK  is meant to keep competitive baseball open to kids from all walks of life – we want to make talent the primary factor in determining who can play competitive, travel team baseball.

In the past, The Hardtke  Baseball Academy  has contributed significant funds for player scholarships and travel fees. In fact , The Hardtke Baseball Academy has  contributed over $100,000 in the past 10  seasons. These funds assured spots on Hardtke travel teams for kids who did not have the financial wherewithal to do so on their own. BFK  was  formed to expand the opportunities beyond what The Hardtke World of Baseball Academy can do alone. BFK  was  formed as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, so that contributions are tax deductible. Our Federal Tax ID# is: 36-4495191.

We’re asking for help from people and groups who recognize the importance of keeping baseball open to everyone – people like you! Any size contribution is appreciated. All donors, will be recognized by The Hardtke Baseball Academy. and be prominently featured on The Hardtke Baseball Academy website (
