Striking Out Poverty

We want to see baseball end poverty in the Dominican Republic.

Striking Out Poverty is an innovative campaign connecting Major League Baseball players and fans to help end poverty in the Dominican Republic through Food for the Hungry (FH). We’re focused on meeting the urgent needs of the poorest communities and seeing all people flourish!

Our athlete partners are dedicating their stats to making a difference beyond the scoreboard this season. And when an athlete joins Striking Out Poverty, every strikeout, hit, or stolen base can make an impact!

But we can’t do it without you! Will you help us use baseball to end poverty in the Dominican Republic?
