The 2014 Run the Bases 5K/10K.

Our national pastime is getting
passed over.

Today, baseball and softball are taking second billing to sports like soccer and basketball. Most often, it's simply because there aren't enough ballparks. With each generation, interest in playing ball as a childhood sport is waning.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to improve the lives of underprivileged kids in largely low-income neighborhoods by providing the opportunity to play baseball and softball, which through teamwork, strengthens character, builds pride and teaches skills for life. We do this by helping ensure they have a quality place to play by providing assistance and rallying the support needed to build new ballparks and/or improve existing ballparks.

Go to bat for our youth.
