Baseball Tomorrow Fund Awards Grant to NC Little League

In support of the ongoing commitment from Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association to increase youth participation in baseball, the Baseball Tomorrow Fund has awarded a grant of $23,800 to Mountaineer Little League of Waynesville, N.C., to pay for equipment.

The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is designed to promote and enhance the growth of baseball throughout the world by funding programs, field improvements and equipment purchases to encourage and maintain youth participation in baseball and softball. Since its inception in 1999, the Baseball Tomorrow Fund has awarded grants totaling more than $9 million benefiting nearly 109,000 youth participating in more than 180 youth baseball and softball programs across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, U.S. Virgin Islands, Nicaragua, and Europe.

Last year, the Baseball Tomorrow Fund and Musco Sports Lighting reached an agreement to offer free lighting consultations and discounted lighting equipment for field construction/renovation projects to organizations funded by the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. This agreement provides Baseball Tomorrow Fund grant recipients with free consultation services and significant discounts on Musco projects.
