Our Process

Bring baseball fans together to get players the resources they need. Here’s how your contributions make an impact:

Many minor league ballplayers are currently forced to locate and pay for their own housing during the season. Your gift will allow More Than Baseball to help players access affordable housing and purchase basic living essentials like a mattress and cooking accessories.
Players require optimal nutrition to perform at their best and a gift to More Than Baseball will allow players access to free and discounted meals, snacks, and supplements for before and after games.
Many minor leaguers have to buy their own bats, batting gloves, fielding gloves, and cleats during the season. Funds raised by More Than Baseball will go to providing stipends and discounted gear to these ballplayers.
Life After Baseball
For minor leaguers, a career after baseball is seen as an afterthought. Many of these players retire with nothing on their resume and no skills to help them find or maintain work. This community will take great pride in helping players succeed in the real world by providing career and financial services to all ballplayers.
