Have no fear: When the London Series ends and before the next World Baseball Classic cycle begins, there will still be plenty of baseball for every fan in the country. And thanks to the new MLB London Series Legacy Programme, there will be more opportunities to play and participate for anyone who wants to.
In partnership with the Mayor’s Greater London Authority, Britain’s baseball governing and development bodies – British Baseball Federation, British Softball Federation and Baseball Softball UK – and MLB are developing a range of initiatives to help bring baseball to more people and locations than ever before. Greater cooperation and funding across the sport will create playing opportunities for tens of thousands of children and young people through new outreach and school programs.
In addition, the Legacy Programme will help build additional capacity within club and community playing networks, support and improve pathways for elite player development, and provide targeted support to expand and improve baseball and softball facilities.
With more players, fans, officials and volunteers than ever before – a number that only continues to grow – the Legacy Programme will promote physical and mental wellbeing, engage young people in under-served communities across the country, and create a stronger, more robust baseball system for the entire country.
