“…On the seventh day, God rested…and played baseball…”
Welcome to Global Sports Foundation, an IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt, non-profit public charity. Through a love and passion for baseball, our mission is twofold:
1. We provide gently used and new baseball equipment for underprivileged children and adults in the U.S and the world. The pictures throughout this website are some of the recipients of those generous donations.
2. We also do special events such as charity baseball games as the Midnight Madness Baseball Marathon to raise funds for an individual who is suffering from an illness, such as ALS or cancer. The net proceeds go to the family to help with medical bills or mounting living expenses, due to their ailment.

Ray and Michael were humanitarians, avid baseball players and fans; they are sorely missed… Learn More
