Baden (BAH -den)
How do you say it, anyway?!
We've heard everything from
"BAY-den" to "BAD-den",
but it's "BAH-den"!

Baden Sports is proud to announce that it will be the Official Baseball of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) beginning with the upcoming 2012 season. Baden will provide balls for all levels of the state series including all district tournaments, regional tournaments, and the state tournament.
“I am proud of our new partnership with Baden Sports because Baden’s reputation for quality athletic equipment, along with their commitment to interscholastic sports, makes this an ideal relationship for the FHSAA’s member schools,” said Roger Dearing, Executive Director of the FHSAA.
To celebrate this announcement, Baden and the FHSAA will provide samples of the game balls to every program in the state. Several leading Florida high school coaches have already committed to using Baden baseballs:

· His comments echo those of Ed Doskow, head coach of perennial powerhouse Southridge High School (Miami), “We have been using the Baden ball for over a year and love it. I hope all Florida coaches experience what we already know, Baden’s baseball line is exceptional.”
· Finally, Terry Rupp, AD at Jesuit High School (Tampa) and former Head Coach at the University of Maryland confirms, “Baden’s line of baseballs and bats are high in performance and quality; we are committed to providing our athlete’s the best and we will be using Baden.”
