Baseball Gives Back

This kid's glove is made of CARDBOARD







  

WE'RE GOING TO HAITI...

Founder David Fantin is heading to Haiti this winter with friend and baseball junkie, Rob Born.  With cameras in hand, they plan to capture those moments of life and make a documentary, so the world can see what's really going on.

Haiti still suffers from the effects of the earthquake a few years back. There are homeless and parentless kids roaming the streets.  Baseball can help them have a little fun, and let them temporally forget about their woes and challenges. 

There is hope in Haiti...

A new glove or a dozen baseballs costs about $40.  You can hit the donate button below and buy some needed baseball fielding gloves and balls!  Any donation amount is appreciated..

Monetary donations are tax deductible!

Hit the Donate Button...thanks!


"...On the seventh day, 

God rested...and played baseball..."

Welcome to Baseball Gives Back of 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 Midniight 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.

This website is dedicated to all those who suffer or have suffered from MD, MS, cancer and ALS...especially in memory of Bobby Vincent, our first Midnight Madness recipient who passed away from ALS, and my fellow Orioles Fantasy Campers, Jim Coan (cancer) and Drew Miller (ALS).

The creation of this website was inspired through the untimely loss of friends Ray Lammie and Michael Goldsmith.  Ray created the Eli Barken Charity Events before he passed away from a multi-bout fight with cancer.  Michael, who passed away from ALS,  brought much needed attention to ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), by convincing Major League Baseball to have an ALS Awareness Day and Charity created on July 4, 2009, the 70th Anniversary of Gehrig's moving speech at Yankee Stadium.  
Ray and Michael were humanitarians, avid baseball players and fans; they are sorely missed...
