Our vision is that equipment will never be a barrier to participation and that all children have equal access to opportunities to play ball. Since 2005, we have donated over $10 million in equipment to help over 900,000 kids gain access to baseball and softball in every state in the US and in over 100 countries worldwide.
As an intermediary, Pitch In For Baseball & Softball serves as the connector between industry leaders, stakeholders, and the community at large. PIFBS is grateful to work with many leaders in the baseball/softball world, organizations, and foundations who have a shared vision to give kids in under-resourced communities the opportunity to play baseball and softball regardless of their financial means. We are the leaders in our space, helping over 600 programs each year begin or expand their baseball or softball teams. PIFBS works closely with Major League Baseball, Little League, and other funding partners to identify and assist hundreds of programs across the country each year. In addition, PIFBS teams up with more than a dozen MLB club teams (Reds, Twins, Yankees, Dodgers, Mets, Phillies, Pirates, Brewers, A’s, White Sox, Braves, Cubs), the Youth Development Foundation, Wilson Sporting Goods, Easton, USA Baseball, and USA Softball in various capacities.
