Far Rockaway RBI Volunteer Day—Saturday, June 17, 2017, 11:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., O’Donohue Park, Far Rockaway
Thank you to our 2017 volunteers! Stay tuned for details for next year’s event.
Far Rockaway RBI is a baseball league for youth ages 6-14, formed by The Child Center of NY in partnership with other community partners, including Major League Baseball (MLB). The children engage in practices and games, clinics, baseball-related youth development activities, and opportunities to engage with MLB players and other personnel from the New York Mets while learning the values of teamwork, self-discipline, and sportsmanship through baseball.
On Far Rockaway RBI Volunteer Day, volunteers will have the opportunity to coach a team with a manager. Those with no baseball experience can help set up the field, oversee water and field supplies, remind the players of the lineup, and possibly provide snacks or lunch. No matter what your task, you will be serving as a positive role model for the players and have a unique chance to see the magic of Far Rockaway RBI in action!
