Baseball USA

Our Mission: Baseball USA exists to develop the mind, body and spirit of the youth in our community by cultivating relationships through the game of baseball. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we aim to positively impact the lives of our athletes in order to strengthen our leaders of tomorrow.

What We Do

Baseball USA focuses on using Baseball as a way to leverage our ability to teach young adolescence the significance and importance to give back to those who are in need in our community.

Focus

  • Invest in youth 9-13 years of age
  • Current area in which we expect to be active includes:
    • 5 mile radius around our location, Spring Branch, West Side of Houston
  • We will work with youth in the area providing baseball related opportunities (camps, outings) that will help drive not only participation in the sport but personal growth as well
  • We will also act to address needs that will have positive impact on the lives of athletes in our community that may not be directly baseball-related

Funding

  • Some of the funding for our organization comes from charity tournaments that we host throughout the year. Another source of funding is through the Houston Metro Scout League, a high school age Fall showcase, designed to provide top level competition and put varsity baseball players directly in front of college scouts. These competitive events have also proven to be very positive baseball opportunities for our Houston-area high school youth.
  • We also gratefully accept tax-free donations as well. If you would like to donate please access the link below. You will receive a 501(C)(3) form for your tax deductible donation and all proceeds will benefit the Baseball USA program.
