Think back to that first time you went to the ballpark and saw the players in person. You watched as your heroes dashed onto the field, dazzled you with their strength and power. They were larger than life, then. But now many of them face the harsher realities of life. Some have lost their physical abilities, many do not have money to pay the bills, so many are in need of some help.
The Baseball Assistance Team (B.A.T.) is in the helping business and we are dedicated to being there for our family members in need. Whether they were the batting practice pitcher who tossed you a foul ball, the shortstop who autographed your program or the Most Valuable Player whose statistics you memorized, we will, and have, helped them.
The primary objective of the Baseball Assistance Team is to aid those members of the "baseball family" most in need. B.A.T. strives to provide a means of support to people who are unable to help themselves. Through charitable contributions from corporations, foundations and individuals, B.A.T. is there to assist those with financial, psychological or physical burdens.
