what we do

Through academic tutoring and baseball instruction, our goal for youth is to understand the value of education, giving back to the community, and what the game of baseball means. Youth learn about the importance of character, giving and earning respect, hard work and what it means to be a part of a team. OTB provides one more base hit in their game life to become better individuals.

Why we matter

Sports Programs

At Opportunity Through Baseball we provide instruction to children in central Phoenix at no cost to them. These children may not have the opportunity to play in a little league because of travel or financial restrictions. Baseball is dying in the central cities across the country, we are working to restore America's pastime to our city.read more...

After School Programs

It is important to emphasize that children of poverty do not have broken brains or limited intelligence. These students have tremendous potential to succeed with the right combination of education and interventions.

Closing the Gap

Today, low-income students are four and a half times more likely to drop out of high school, and even those who are academically proficient are far less likely to complete college. The gap in SAT scores between wealthy and poor students has grown by 42% in the last two decades. We need help closing this gap.
