The Italian American Baseball Foundation is a 501c3 charity foundation established in 2016. The IABF is committed to promoting the game of baseball in the United States and Italy by developing youth talent through clinics, camps and showcases with MLB instructors, College Coaches, individual training, and scholarships.
The IABF donates baseball equipment to organized youth teams as well as individuals in need of uniforms, bats, gloves, cleats and more.
The IABF will provide scholarships or financial assistance to student-athletes that qualify academically to play baseball in the United States on the College and/or High School level.
