Baseball Exchange Program

Our Baseball Exchange program sends coaches and equipment overseas and brings young players to America to participate in baseball camps.

I was delighted to be picked by Baseball United Foundation for the opportunity to receive some top quality baseball training in New York. The coaching I received was first class, and when I came back to Ireland it showed in my game.
I am now on the Irish National Team and loving every minute of it. I help with the coaching on our Little League Team, and I enjoy passing on what I’ve been taught to them.
Thanks again to Baseball United Foundation, and all the coaches and people involved with them, who spent time with me and helped me out during my visit.

I’d like to thank The Baseball United Foundation for giving kids like me opportunities to participate in baseball camps and further improve their baseball skills. I truly enjoyed my time at the baseball camp and have brought back the skills and techniques learnt from the coaches which will help the progress of baseball in Ireland.

Having the opportunity to go over this past summer to work with Irish Little Leaguers and players on the Irish National Baseball Team helped me remember why I love baseball so much. These young players have a pure passion to learn the game of baseball and to compete. Every player came ready to play, learn, and to overall have fun. I’m excited to see how these young players develop over the years.

During 2016, we included the Foundation’s kind donation of baseball equipment and supplies in our annual ocean freight shipment. We look forward to continuing our partnership this year and beyond.
