In bringing baseball back to the District of Columbia, Major League Baseball played a central role in bringing the Academy to life. As a founding partner for the project, MLB has supported the Academy and its programs since 2013.
The District of Columbia government through Events DC supported the Academy as a start-up investor and continues to support the organization as a founding partner. As the face of conventions, sports, entertainment and cultural events within our nation's capital, Events DC continues to be an influential strategic partner for the Academy.
In partnership with Major League Baseball and the District of Columbia government, the Washington Nationals committed to building a youth baseball facility to benefit youth residents in underserved areas of the city.
