Mission Statement

The purpose of the Pickup Baseball Foundation is to build a community that provides inclusive access to the game of baseball to as many people as possible. We specifically aim to provide a free drop-in service to participants, to implement a welcoming, healthy, and safe baseball environment, and to provide wraparound trauma-informed support through mentorship, a social group atmosphere for spectators and players, opportunity for employment, and food.

Description

David made a craigslist post, joined a group of new friends at a field in Oakland, and they met there every Sunday at noon starting in June 2021. Used baseballs, a few bats and gloves, and an ability to show up every week swelled the North Oakland Pickup Baseball group to weekly turnouts of more than 10 teenagers, women, seniors, fathers and sons, uncles and nephews, and baseball players from places as far as Vallejo, Santa Rosa, Sausalito, and San Jose.
