Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI)Through collaboration with Major League Baseball, Boys & Girls Clubs of America has expanded or established baseball and fast-pitch softball programs in more than 150 communities nationwide. The RBI program, sponsored by the Pawtucket Red Sox, is not only a long-standing tradition at the Pawtucket Club, but one of excellence as well.
Junior RBIJunior RBI, which is a bridge between tee ball and fast pitch baseball, is an organized league designed to teach youth, ages 6-12, the fundamentals of baseball. One of the unique features of this program is that participants hit live pitches from a pitching machine that always throws strikes. The primary goals of our Junior RBI are to teach grassroots level baseball, encourage sportsmanship, and provide a fun environment for beginning players. Program benefits include building the self-confidence and motivation of members.
Tee BallDesigned to teach young boys and girls the basics, our tee ball program welcomes children ages 4-5. Supervised by Boys & Girls Club staff, games are held once a week for seven weeks each summer. Players learn the very basics including how to swing a bat and run the bases, as well as respect, socialization, and how to be a good team player!
