Even the very best baseball players must overcome adversity and challenges; a career.300 hitter has a decent chance at making the Hall of Fame despite the fact they failed to reach base in the vast majority of their at-bats. In this respect, the game of baseball lends itself particularly well to the science of what is commonly known as sport for development. Working with like-minded partners, each year Jays Care provides over 65,000 Canadian children and youth programming and safe spaces in which to play, where they are given the opportunity to gain valuable life skills such as teamwork, leadership, resiliency, confidence and self-esteem.
