The Players Alliance Launches Mobile Tour w/ Pull Up Neighbor (VIDEO)

The Players Alliance, a nonprofit organization comprised of more than 150 active and former Major League Baseball Players, seeks to improve representation of Black Americans in all levels of the game.

This season on Jackie Robinson Day, MLB Players from across the league donated their game-day salaries to The Players Alliance, raising more than $1 million which the organization is reinvesting in the Black community. Major League Baseball is matching the Alliance’s investment with a donation of an additional $1 million worth of supplies and baseball equipment, expanding the Alliance’s reach in the communities that need it most.

On December 1, The Players Alliance launched a two-month, cross- country mobile tour in partnership with Pull Up Neighbor, a Black-owned community response team. Many underserved children have endured countless losses due to the pandemic, including access to learn and play baseball. This program’s goal is to help counter all that and provide support during these uncertain times.
