Youth baseball is alive and well in Jacksonville, as it is most cities in Florida and in the South. Travel baseball continues to grow and the city has some of the top recreation baseball leagues in the state. But lost in the shuffle of it all is that high amount of young people in the area who are not able to play youth baseball. Sometimes it is for financial reasons. Other times it is resources such as travel – ability to get to the park. Others simply haven’t been exposed to the game that has been played on sandlots, open fields and youth league parks for more than a century. They don’t have access. They don’t have equipment. They haven’t been around it. That is why Walk-Off Charities is needed. Formed in 2017, WOC will provide baseball opportunities to ALL young people on the First Coast who are interested. We will do so with providing of equipment, of tutelage and of monies to make it possible for any young person interested in baseball to play it.
You can donate money or new and used baseball equipment.
