MLB-MLBPA Youth Development Foundation Invites Letters of Inquiry

Posted by Major League Baseball Players Association on September 28, 2021

The MLB-MLBPA Youth Development Foundation is a joint initiative between Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association that was created to increase participation in and expand access to youth baseball and softball.

The foundation will accept applications throughout the year for bold, innovative, and creative ideas to increase opportunities to play baseball and/or softball for youth (age 20 and under), in particular youth who are minorities, girls, and/or located in underserved communities.

The foundation considers requests for a variety of purposes including:

Capital Projects: Such as building and renovating fields and practice facilities and installing lighting.

Baseball/Softball Programs: Such as in-school/after-school baseball/softball programming, equipment and uniforms, umpire fees, player registration fees and practice facility rental fees.

Education Initiatives: Such as programs, exhibits, and other learning opportunities that use baseball and softball as its primary focus to promote interest and engagement in the game.

Letters of Inquiry will be considered on a rolling basis, and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Major League Baseball Players Association website.

Deadline: September 17, 2022 Rolling (Letters of Inquiry)
