Little League Initiative

Baseball is at the center of all we do and it’s the same for the “Wally’s Team” the Red Sox Foundation – MA Little League initiative.

Expanding on the important work we do with Boston’s inner city youth and the Rookie/RBI Baseball and Softball, the Red Sox Foundation sponsors a team from each of the 317 Little Leagues in the New England states of Rhode Island, Maine, and Massachusetts.

Red Sox Foundation sponsored teams are named “Wally’s Team” to educate children the importance of character, discipline, teamwork and physical fitness. In addition to offering team sponsorships, the Foundation sponsors coach/volunteer clinics, the annual Little League State Tournament in the summer, and presents Volunteer of the Year Award at a special pregame ceremony at Fenway. Red Sox Foundation’s Little League Initiative is presented by Massachusetts Health Connector and sponsored by Janet, Jenner & Suggs, National Grid and HP Hood.

If you are a chartered official Little League in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and recognized as 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity in good standing, you are eligible to apply.

As part of the Red Sox Foundation sponsorship, each sponsored team is required to send Red Sox Foundation a picture of their team in front of the branded banner (supplied by the Foundation) during the season. The 2017 Application is now available!
