Give Detroit – A Charitable Registry
At Bat is striving to increase the number of at-risk youth who participate in baseball and softball by providing free clinics and low-cost programs.
// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED
At Bat is an amateur sports agency that conducts baseball and softball activities for youth. The organization teaches the fundamentals of the sports, and how to play safely while building confidence and self-assurance. With limited funding, At Bat has serviced more than 150 children through clinics and programs. That number is expected to triple in the coming year by increasing the number of clinics and programs, engaging more parents, and training volunteers to be mentors. Additionally, the organization plans to take the game of baseball to a new level by using sabermetrics to design drills that incorporate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through collaboration with community organizations and neighborhood block clubs, At Bat plans to connect urban youth to the game, with the ultimate goal of increasing African-American representation in the MLB from 8.5 percent to double digits.
