About Play Ball!
Play Ball is SNY's year-round community outreach program that serves to give back to the tri-state area through unique and comprehensive support of local youth sports. Over the past three years, SNY Play Ball has awarded over $100,000 in grants to youth baseball and softball programs in communities in the New York metropolitan area, including New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania (Pike County), and Long Island.
In 2014, SNY Play Ball is expanding into a year round, cross sports initiative with the goal to reach more individuals throughout our community. While Play Ball remains committed to supporting baseball and softball programs, football and basketball platforms are now included within the roster of opportunities. SNY will continue to award grants, conduct clinics and grassroots events, and provide youth programs with a game experience. In addition, new complementary opportunities include equipment donations, volunteer initiatives, and a dream day experience making a deserving child's dreams a reality. The Play Ball program culminates with multiple "Play Ball Weeks" throughout the year, where SNY will honor and highlight individuals and selected leagues daily on air on SNY.
We are now accepting applications for the spring baseball and softball program. You have the option to apply for more than one opportunity, which you can read about here. Deadline to complete an application is February 24, 2014.
