Recognizing the 2015 League Sponsor

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City is thrilled to recognize Royals Charities as our 2015 RBI League Sponsor. Royals Charities are a long-time supporter of our RBI program and have been a vital partner in the development and growth of this program. As we launch into another season of proving hundreds of youth from across our urban core with the opportunity to play baseball and softball, it is with gratitude that we recognize our great friends at Royals Charities for their unyielding commitment and generosity in helping us sustain and grow the impact of the RBI program. Thank you for helping us make a meaningful difference in the lives of so many young people!

Thank you RBI Team Sponsors! 

 With the start of the 2015 RBI season just around the corner, we would like to thank all of the RBI Team Sponsors to date. As our RBI motto states, “It’s More Than Baseball…It’s Life!” 

We believe every child who desires to play should have access to a quality program – the RBI program. We would not be able to provide youth with this meaningful life experience if it were not for the generous support of the RBI Team Sponsors listed below.

Kansas City Public Schools (KCPS) and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City  are joining forces to offer expanded sports programming to KCPS students.

This summer, KCPS Elementary schools will join the Clubs’ RBI program. Young male and female students at all 26 KCPS elementary schools have an opportunity to participate on their own school team or a combined school team. Students receive organized, structured sports instruction from trained coaches. Games will be played in a safe environment on well-maintained RBI fields. Uniforms and some essential equipment will be provided through BGCGKC RBI, and all participants will be able to take part in an end of season celebration.
