We are on a Mission: To promote the game of baseball, raise money for charity, inspire and educate youth through positive sport images and protect the dignity of the game through former Major League players.
Join the Alumni Association and receive insider baseball information, discounts on leading brands and MLBPAA corporate affiliates and access to an exclusive fraternity of baseball greats.
Since 1982, the MLBPAA has staged events to raise money for charities to interact with the community or to simply give back to the community. Youth clinics, golf outings, fundraisers and alumni days are among the events typically featured on the MLBPAA event schedule.
Established in 1999, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) created the Legends for Youth Dinner to recognize former Major League players for their on-field accomplishments and their off-field contributions to communities across the nation.
