Reviving Baseball in Inner-Cities
Engaging Kids, Families, and Communities

The Red Sox Foundation’s Reviving Baseball in Inner-Cities (RBI) Program is aimed at boys and girls aged 9-18 in Boston and its neighborhoods.

Our vision is for every young person in New England to have access and opportunity to play baseball and softball.  As such, the Red Sox Foundation runs the RBI and Jr. RBI Leagues, which annually serve 2,000 boys and girls, ages 5-18, in Boston.  RBI provides team equipment, uniforms, field access and umpires at no cost to players and their families, and supports a cohort of dedicated coaches who use baseball and softball as a platform to teach core values of teamwork, respect and leadership.

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. Each year, we strive to strengthen our programming, 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.
