About RBI


Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) is a Major League Baseball youth outreach program designed to:
  • Encourage academic achievement

  • Teach the value of teamwork


Since 1990, Mathews-Dickey Boys & Girls Club has been providing area youth aged 14-18 the opportunity to play RBI (Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities) and Cardinals Care has provided financial support to the program for the last decade. In 2023, the Cardinals brought RBI in house to extend the opportunity for teens to play RBI throughout the St. Louis Metro and surrounding areas. The shift also helps provide a natural transition to more competitive play for children in the Cardinals Care Redbird Rookies Youth Baseball and Softball program once they graduate at the age of 13.
