Fun and free baseball clinics

YBA PLAY delivers fun and free instructional clinics to kids, ages 6 to 12 in underserved communities, giving them the chance to learn and love the game of baseball with year-round clinics and summer league teams. Nike, the Official Uniform and Footwear Supplier of Major League Baseball, serves as the first-ever presenting sponsor of YBA PLAY by providing direct financial support for program operations and equipment along with apparel for summer league uniforms.

By reducing the barriers to access, both geographic and financial, providing young people with a positive, high-paced, engaging youth baseball experience, YBA PLAY can increase the consistent participation of youth in underserved communities by supporting the emotional and physical development of its participants.

In addition to Nike’s Presenting Sponsorship, YBA PLAY also receives support from Fight For Children, the Joseph E. Robert, Jr. Charitable Trust, and the Seeber Family.


YBA PLAY Programming runs year-round and is available to children ages 6-12 in Wards 7 and 8. No prior experience is required to participate. Equipment is provided.
