It's not every day we get to see the impact of what baseball can do to edify a community. The MLB Youth Academy has proven that with great leadership, integrous coaching, and passionate purpose, holistic community uplift is possible.

A positive culture was immediately felt after stepping onto the campus. The once tough neighborhood has obviously transformed back into the vibrant and supported community it once was.
