How It Works

Pitch In For Baseball has helped nearly half a million boys and girls around the world play baseball and softball. Whether it is a school, youth baseball organization, team, or a volunteer stationed overseas, we will work with anyone who wants to give kids the joy of baseball/softball.

We only have two criteria to assess eligibility:

  • The program must serve economically disadvantaged kids (18 and under)
  • Should your group be awarded an equipment grant, you must be able to cover the cost of shipping and related customs/taxes/fees (international projects)

We provide gloves, bats, balls, bases, catcher’s gear and uniforms. All we ask for in return is for grantees to complete a year-end report.

Things we don’t support:

  • Competitive travel teams (the type focused on showcases, scouting, etc.)
  • Programs for adults
  • Individual families/children


Does your group qualify? Start my application!

  • - If your program is located in any country other than the United States, answer YES to the above question and complete the INTERNATIONAL application.

    - If your program, school, team, or league is in the U.S., you would answer NO to this question and then select the type of program.
