Our mission is to develop respect and teamwork through baseball.
What we do
Play Global teaches baseball to coaches and youth in developing countries and areas of conflict. We use baseball as a way to help kids see past their differences, respect others, and play as a team.
Since baseball is new to our participants, they all start as beginners. They learn and work together.
We strive to create long-lasting baseball programs led by coaches in our host countries.
We are passionate about the game of baseball and about helping kids succeed.
