Our vision is for every young person in New England to have access and opportunity to play baseball and softball.
The Red Sox Foundation aims to support youth baseball and softball in all of Red Sox Nation with the goals of;
- Closing the opportunity gap for underserved youth to participate and thrive
- Ensuring all youth baseball and softball players have a positive experience
There are long-term physical, academic and social-emotional benefits for youth who are physically active and have a positive role model in their life. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we pivoted to create the Virtual RBI (vRBI) platform to stay engaged with our youth players, coaches and families, providing access to skills, drills, and valuable resources to stay active and informed during these “remote” months.
To plan for post-COVID-19 recovery, our focus remains on what we can control in this moment of uncertainty and how we can improve innovation for our longer term planning. At this time, we are reevaluating our strategy and will look forward to communicating our plans for the season ahead later this spring.
