DC Grays Baseball is hosting a fundraising kickball tournament, called “Kick it for Kids,” on Saturday, July 31 at the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy. Proceeds will benefit the DC Grays RBI youth baseball and softball program, as well as Mamie Johnson Little League, Ward 8 Little League, and Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB) Little League. The programs will use the funds raised at this event for uniforms and equipment. All four programs operate primarily in Wards 7 and 8 – some of the most economically-disadvantaged areas in DC.
“This will be a fun event for a great cause,” said Mike Barbera, president of DC Grays Baseball. “Our RBI program is expanding again this year, and our three Little League partners serve hundreds of kids every spring. The proceeds from this event will help us buy new uniforms and equipment, and make improvements to our fields so we can better serve even more families.”
Kick it for Kids will be a double-elimination tournament using approved kickball rules from the World Kickball Association. The cost is $2500 per team, and teams can have up to 12 players.
