Play Ball

Thinking Outside the Diamond

Play BallPLAY BALL allows youth to increase their overall fitness while learning the fundamental skills of baseball and softball through fun and enriching activities.

PLAY BALL is a new program that highlights the many ways baseball can be played outside of the traditionally organized baseball leagues and tournaments, ranging from playing catch, stickball and WIFFLE Ball games to participating in skills competitions like “Pitch, Hit & Run.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of America is proud to have been the official charity of Major League Baseball (MLB) for more than 20 years. As we enter into the next phase of this partnership, we are offering grant opportunities to local Boys & Girls Clubs to enhance Major League Baseball’s PLAY BALL footprint within the Movement.
