HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL CLASSIC
The annual High School Tournament showcases the top teams on the First Coast in a preseason event broadcast locally on CW17.
ADOPT A TEAM
This year Walk Off will start a new adopt a team program. This program will allow Walk Off to assist a local High School team with improving their facilities, equipment and being there as support for the players and coaches.
Walk Off is committed to helping youth baseball facilities improve. By improving these parks, it allows for more kids in that area to be exposed to the game of baseball! This project started at Sans Souci Park and has included improvements at Wolfson High School and San Mateo Park.
Thanks to generous equipment donations, Walk Off has been able to repurpose used equipment and purchase new equipment to help youth organizations. Recently, Walk Off donated a new pitching machine and catchers equipment to the league at the Johnny Walker Community Center. Walk Off works with Faith Field ministries on an equipment donation for a mission project in Nicaragua.
Walk Off hosts clinics to third grade students from around Jacksonville. Overall, more than 2,400 children will go through the program of learning to field, throw, hit and pitch while receiving their own glove to keep on top of a hot dog lunch.
In 2021, Walk Off will introduce our new in school clinics to target inner city schools.
FREE BASEBALL LEAGUES
Thanks to THE PLAYERS, Walk Off Charities was able to start a FREE baseball league in association with Southside Youth Athletic Association - giving 400+ children the opportunity to play baseball, most for the first time. Each year we want to continue to grow this number more and more!
