Evansville youth baseball players are headed to Marlins Park for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Weekend.
Mattingly Charities RBI will participate in several events on one of MLB’s biggest stages as they join 11 other teams selected to play in the Youth All-Star Classic.
It is not only a chance to play world-class competition, with a team from Puerto Rico also involved, but a chance for the inner-city kids of Evansville to see what is beyond the Ohio River.
The RBI program is a worldwide MLB-run youth outreach program designed to revive and increase baseball participation in inner cities.
Mattingly Charities RBI will play in the round-robin tournament July 7-10 at Grapeland Park and Fern Isle Park in Miami.
