HOMERUN:

Our goal is to raise $125,000 to ensure America’s pastime continues to grow in Chicago. Each donation will have a tangible benefit to youth baseball and softball league participants and will support a number of parks across the city including, but not limted to:

Amundsen Park
Blackhawk Park
