Unfortunately, just wanting to play baseball is not enough – one of the most crucial elements is the equipment needed to play the game. Our players understand that lack of access to equipment means that millions of kids in Black communities won’t be introduced to the game of baseball or able to properly play, leading to a decline in overall participation and fanship across underserved areas.

This initiative will open up the field of opportunities and, quite literally, change the game. Our Gear for Good initiative is a national player-led equipment drive and implementation program where players will work with their respective corporate partners, teams, teammates, and fans to collect gently used baseball equipment and have it cleaned, packaged, and delivered to Black communities across the United States.
