About the Tom Sox

Who are the Tom Sox?

The Tom Sox are a non-profit organization focused on impacting the Charlottesville community by providing a world-class summer baseball experience for the best players across the country.

Our vision is to become an integral asset in the Charlottesville community for our fans, players, and volunteers.

Our mission is to create an unparalleled summer collegiate baseball experience through the development of our players and volunteers and engagement in and with our community, and by holding ourselves to standards of excellence and professionalism on and off the field.

 

The Tom Sox Legacy:

The Tom Sox have been ranked the number one collegiate summer program in the United States and are committed to an elite on-field product that has produced three (3) Valley League Championships in eight (8) years since inception. 

Throughout the summer, players travel all across Central Virginia during a 40-game season and reside with local host families who generously open up their homes to these elite athletes.
