Arizona Youth Baseball
The Arizona Youth Baseball Program (AYB) is the designated charity of the Arizona Major League Alumni (AZMLA). AYB promotes the game of baseball in Arizona, specifically by teaching good sportsmanship and skills of the game through organized clinics (Clinic Schedule). With corporate partners, the ABCs of Baseball & Life, and the Arizona Diamondbacks, AYB conducts more than 20 youth clinics throughout Arizona and makes generous contributions to many worthwhile youth-oriented programs.
The Baseball Assistance Team (BAT) is a charitable organization devoted to helping those from the professional baseball “family” who have come up against hard times. Our family includes former Major League, Negro League and Minor League players. It also includes the widows, umpires, scouts and front office personnel.
A Helping Hand For Those In Need
The Association of Professional Ball Players of America (APBP) provides financial assistance for those professional baseball players, coaches, umpires, scouts and clubhouse men who are in need. No distinction is made between the Major League player and the Minor Leaguer. The APBPA and the AZMLA work hand in hand to achieve their common goals.
The Major League Baseball Players Alumni (MLBPA) was formed in 1987. Its mission is to promote the game of baseball, involve former Major League players in community activities, inspire today’s youth through positive sports images, and raise funds to support important charitable causes.
