Empowering youth baseball
In January 2016, Roberto and Kim Alomar started up Foundation 12, a Canadian charitable organization serving youth baseball players. The mission of Foundation 12 is simple, “to create and support signature programs that empower youth baseball players and offer them an opportunity to improve their quality of life”. Foundation 12 will focus its efforts and programming to help youth baseball players in Canada with financial assistance, program support, and educational opportunities.
Our focus includes …
Youth baseball players living in high priority communities
This will include players from low socio-economic status that do not have the financial means to participate in organized baseball and sport in general.
Youth baseball players with physical or cognitive disabilities
This will include programming and resources for players already participating in, or who would like to participate in Challenger Baseball or Special Olympics.
Elite level youth players, considering baseball as a profession
Players that have an opportunity to use baseball to further their education through a college/university scholarship or to sign with a professional team, or those who are passionate about working in the business of baseball.
