U Deserve A Chance Foundation: (UDACF) is a baseball specific youth foundation founded by retired MLB Baseball Players to bridge the financial gap for families in need to play the game of baseball. The foundation raises money to provide scholarships to families in need in order for their kids to be a part of a travel team, access to training facility rentals, receive MLB level coaching for both the youth athlete and their parents and to receive equipment. Baseball like many sports is a game that continues to provide life lessons beyond the diamond. Attributes such as perseverance, focus, hard work, teamwork, and sportsmanship can be taken with these youth outside of the lines of the field. It is our mission to provide everyone a chance to learn those values and to grow the game that we all love.
