MLB Pledges Support to Hall of Fame’s ‘BASE’ Education Program
MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Major League Baseball has made a significant contribution to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s newest education outreach program.
The Hall of Fame’s “BASE” Program, which teaches the foundations of healthy living for young athletes, as well as for men and women of all ages, encourages participants to “Be A Superior Example,” by signing a national registry to pledge to live and play free of performance-enhancing substances.
Commissioner Bud Selig announced yesterday that Major League Baseball is proud to support the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum on a program that will help influence young people about the right way to play the game.
Major League Baseball has pushed the fundraising goals set forth by the Museum for the BASE program across home plate, with a major gift that ensures funding for the first two years of the national program implementation.
A national registry encouraging individuals of all ages to complete an online education program and make the pledge to live free of performance-enhancing substances will launch on Sept. 4.
