Uplifting Youth Through Sports Opportunities

MLB data shows that a fan that attends their first game at age 5 goes to 58% more games per year than a fan who goes to their first game at age 14. There is huge financial value in pro teams developing youth programs to get kids into their system, but teams are just now unlocking the tremendous social value of youth initiatives as well. We'll look at some best practices in sports of reaching youth communities, and explore the work that still needs to be done to provide further opportunities.
