Dodgers RBI (Reviving Baseball In Inner Cities) is a baseball/softball youth development program that simultaneously aims to: increase participation in the sport and use sport participation as an engagement tool that increases access to education, literacy, health, wellness, and recreational resources in some of Los Angeles' most underserved communities. Dodgers RBI is bigger than baseball and focuses on youth character development as it engages communities and families in programming. As a program, Dodgers RBI impacts youth and families across all three of LADF's Pillars: Sports + Recreation, Education + Literacy, and Health + Wellness.
The goals of Dodgers RBI are:
In its 2017 season, Dodgers RBI will serve over 7,500 youth, ages 5-18, across Los Angeles. Dodgers RBI is part of an international Major League Baseball initiative, which today encompasses more than 200 cities and over 200,000 youth, helping them to grow on and off the field.
