Goals & Strategies
Our goal is to provide free programming and development for baseball and softball youth from minorities communities across the country. Goals also include creating academic avenues that assist with higher education development. Statistics show that a big issue is that many students who play sports are not academically excelling. This incongruence can ruin their chance of going to a good college and getting a professional job. It also shows that student-athletes who play baseball do not get full athletic scholarships because of the amount that are allowed per NCAA. In strategic partnership with Minority Baseball Prospects, MBP Helping Hands will build funds to sustain community service projects through support from Minority Baseball alumni, current and former MLB players, grants, and corporate partners. MBP Helping Hands also looks to provide a platform that teaches the value of paying it forward through volunteer work and community service givebacks. We aim to build well rounded citizens, students, and athletes.
