Our Mission Statement: We are a non-profit working to expand opportunities for low-income youth of all ages to play baseball, from youth leagues through high school. Our goal is to offer low-cost and cost-free opportunities for youth who otherwise would not be able to afford the high cost of participation. We aim to expand access to the positive youth development and collegiate pathways that this sport and supportive coaches can provide. Please consider donating, sponsoring a player for the summer, or passing the word along to individuals and/or businesses who you feel may be interested in supporting this mission. Every donation helps us to secure fields, purchase uniforms and equipment, pay for league registrations, allow for coach trainings and provide umpire compensation. In turn, this lowers the cost for participating families,
Your giving supports our youth and helps our communities grow stronger!
For the love of the game!
