Supporting Baseball in Ireland

The money raised goes to the Baseball United Foundation’s Irish baseball programs. The Baseball United Foundation works in partnership with Baseball Ireland and the Irish National Baseball Team to grow the game of baseball in Ireland, by providing coaching, equipment, and programs like our Baseball Exchange initiative, which sends coaches and equipment to Ireland. We also fly baseball players from Ireland to the USA to take part in baseball camps.
