Encouraging Kids to Swing for the Fences

RBI Brings America’s Pastime to underserved communities.

Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) is a Major League Baseball initiative with a mission to increase urban and inner-city young people’s interest and participation in baseball and softball by re-introducing, reviving and rebuilding America’s pastime in underserved communities. RBI provides training to Boys & Girls Clubs that wish to start or expand boys’ baseball and girls’ fast-pitch softball leagues for ages 13 to 15 and 16 to 18. RBI teams representing Club leagues are eligible to participate in clinics, eight regional tournaments and a national championship tournament (the RBI World Series) conducted every summer by Major League Baseball.
