The Angels Baseball Foundation is a proud partner and supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs in Orange County. In 1999, the Angels, the Boys & Girls Clubs in Orange County and Major League Baseball partnered together to create the Angels Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) League. This youth program provides an opportunity for 12 to 18-year-olds to play the game of baseball and softball while learning important character and life skills. Through the game RBI concentrates on fundamentals and teamwork, while stressing citizenship and academics. To date, the league has served over 6,500 youth who would not have otherwise had the opportunity to play. Click here for more information on the Angels RBI League.
Angels RBI Clinics
Each season, the Angels RBI League hosts a Baseball and Softball Clinic in the outfield of Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Participants of the league rotate through six instructional stations working on their fielding, batting, speed & agility, sliding, and pitching skills. Instruction is provided by local professional clinicians, college coaches, high school coaches and Angels' players and coaches. In addition members focus on SportSMART, a Boys & Girls Clubs of America prevention program designed to give kids the skills to make wise choices in their daily lives. The Angels RBI League provides kids who would not have otherwise had the chance, the opportunity to play baseball and softball in an organized league.
Angels Youth Baseball Camp
The Angels annually host a Baseball Day Camp in the outfield at Angel Stadium. The goal is to not only teach the proper fundamentals of the game of baseball and softball, but also the fun that can be had while playing. Angels players, coaches, and Alumni assist for a great afternoon of baseball. All proceeds from the camp benefit the Angels RBI League. This season, the Angels will also host their first Softball Day Camp at Angel Stadium.
Since 2006, the Angels and the Baseball Tomorrow Fund have teamed up to host the annual Equipment Drive to benefit local baseball and softball leagues. Fans are encouraged to bring new or used gloves, bats, balls, etc. to the ballpark and drop them off at any of the bins located at outside the stadium. Help support youth baseball and softball by participating in our next Equipment Drive! Click here for more information on the Angels Equipment Drive.
