WHO WE ARE
As the number of African American MLB players decreased, At Bat asked the question why has there been a decline in African American players in the sport of baseball but not in football and basketball? Although, there are a variety of reasons for the decline, we believe that a lack of resources is the key among those reasons. Limited funding and opportunities to learn how to play baseball have put African Americans at a disadvantage. The reality is baseball is an exquisite sport that has more expenses than other sports such as football or basketball. This is why we've made the decision to go to underserved communities who do not have the proper funds to engage in the sport and provide kids with the resources and opportunity to play. We provide kids in underserved communities with the proper resources needed to engage in the game of baseball and softball by conducting clinics.
