The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association (MLBPAA) was formed in 1982 in order 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 players. A non-profit organization, the MLBPAA establishes a place where a player's drive for excellence and achievement on the field can continue long after they take their last steps off the professional diamond.
We believe that the traditions of baseball reflect values in society that are of the highest standards. Our association is dedicated to protecting the dignity of the game through former Major League players.
We achieve our beliefs by demonstrating through our leadership our commitment to preserving core human values, promoting passion for the game of baseball, globally showcasing its values, heritage, and heroes, and by serving the unique needs of players.
Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. The MLBPAA also has a wholly owned, for-profit subsidiary:
- Major League Alumni Marketing (MLAM)
