I don't mind being a shill for the booster clubs at Nebraska, especially when it comes to the 'other' sports. Football gets tons of attention and there are a thousand opportunities to contribute to football and there should be for obvious reasons.
That being said....
The Husker Home Run Club is the official Nebraska Baseball Booster Club. As a booster club, the Home Run Club enhances the baseball program by doing such things as a $70,000 audio/video improvement to the Husker baseball locker room.
So if you'd like to support Husker baseball, consider joining the Home Run Club. There is a printable application at their site, and I'm sure they wouldn't turn you away if you approach their trailer at Haymarket Park.Membership Levels for the Husker Home Run Club:
