The U15 team from The BASE, an organization out of Roxbury, Mass., will play the Maine Sluggers on the Colby College baseball field. The game is free, and the public is invited to attend and support these two teams.
The BASE helps Roxbury youth broaden their ambition through baseball, re-imagines pathways to success for urban youth, and focuses on changing mindsets about what is possible for them. Not only have they been National Baseball Champions for three out of the past six years, but since 2013 more than 200 BASE student athletes have matriculated to college or the workforce. The BASE has built strong relationships with leaders and institutions committed to changing minds, lives, and the status quo, including with Colby College, which recently entered into a formal partnership with The BASE.
