|WHAT YOUR CHARITABLE DONATIONS SUPPORT
When you make a gift to the Babe Ruth League Alumni Association, you do something powerful - you pave the way to endless possibilities for our participants. Babe Ruth Baseball and Softball have been family traditions for over 65 years. Entire neighborhoods gather at the ballpark on warm summer evenings, where kids ride bikes, families cheer from the stands, and the smell of hot dogs and hamburgers waft over postgame parties. Parents, relatives and neighbors serve as coaches, umpires, work in concession stands and in other volunteer positions. It is a sense of community and a prominent part of the growth process for children.
Babe Ruth League has always been an organization with a mission to teach valuable life lessons, providing an endless procession of teachable moments. Kids learn about teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership. They learn to work together to accomplish a goal and learn from their mistakes. These valuable life lessons can enhance life well after childhood, from home life to education to work to relationships. Millions of kids have benefitted from participating in Babe Ruth League, and the program has truly become a place of hope and opportunity for all young people.
One of the main purposes of the Alumni Association is to support the mission of Babe Ruth League, Inc. The program has been around for generations and through the support of the Alumni, we will make sure it is around for many generations to come.
