The Red Sox Foundation’s Reviving Baseball in Inner-Cities (RBI) Program is the recreational cornerstone aimed at inner-city boys and girls aged 9-18.
RBI uses the sport to promote the importance of good decision-making through development of good nutrition, leadership, respect for others, nonviolent conflict resolution, and an overall commitment to one’s potential and to the community.
This program serves hundreds of boys and girls in the Boston community. Beyond the base lines, the Red Sox Foundation and its volunteer coaches seek to help teens see that they have opportunities in life beyond their love of the game. Over the past fifteen years, we’ve strengthened our program, adding more clinics and enrichment activities for our players and coaches. We’ve not only engaged the kids and their families, but their communities too.
