It is more than America’s favorite past time. 

 

Baseball is a powerful tool for youth development. It can foster character, cognitive skills, social skills, and self-confidence in youth from elementary school to college. Youth who play sports on a regular basis are more likely to complete high school and college. 

 

Baseball can be instrumental to developing youth and our communities. 

But the communities who need it the most have the least access. 

2016 study conducted by TD Ameritrade found that more that most of the U.S. families surveyed were spending $100-$499 a month on youth sports with 20% spending $1,000 or more on youth sports (TD Ameritrade, 2016). Since 2016 the margin has only grown larger.
