The Italian American Baseball Foundation (IABF) is a 501(c)(3) 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 with professional MLB instructors, 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.

In addition 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.

Our future goal is to build an international youth baseball/softball academy that will combine education and baseball.
