Join T-Mobile in Supporting Financial Aid players in Need

Dear Little League® Volunteers, Families, and Friends:

Watching the MLB Postseason makes things feel a little bit normal. October is always an exciting time for baseball fans, and for our Little League® family, it’s when we take a deep breath to enjoy watching the game being played at its highest level before we turn our sights on a new Little League season.

By now, we’re all getting tired of saying that things are different. We’ve been navigating this pandemic for more than 200 days, and we’re all ready to focus on the future and brighter, healthier times.

Thanks to our partners at T-Mobile, we have something that we can look forward to. As you may have seen while following the MLB Postseason action, T-Mobile has launched a new campaign to support our T-Mobile Little League Call Up Grant with the hopes of raising over one million dollars that will support families facing economic challenges and help ease the financial burden of registering for their local Little League program.

Some of MLB’s biggest stars have already joined the call with players Didi Gregorius, Charlie Blackmon, Luke Voit, and others, joining T-Mobile's Beyond the Bases, which has helped kickstart the contributions to the Call Up Grant to the tune of $40,000. And, for every home run during the postseason, another $5,000 goes to this great cause.

Now it’s your time to help. All you have to do is text "LittleLeague" to 313131. For every text received, T-Mobile will donate $1 — up to an additional $1 million — to support grant recipients in the texters’ local community. You can text 20 times per phone number. So, please text, and tell your friends and family to text as well. You can also share this on your own social media accounts. I encourage you all to visit LittleLeague.org/CallUpGrant to learn more about this great program and how you can support these efforts. If you find yourself or someone you know in need of the Call Up Grant support, families will be able to apply for this grant beginning in December.

You’ll see and hear more about this campaign throughout the MLB Postseason. And, we hope that you’re not only enjoying some exciting fall baseball, but also stepping up to help thousands of kids who can benefit from the T-Mobile Little League Call Up Grant next year.

I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and happy.

As always, we thank you for your support of Little League Baseball and Softball.

Sincerely,
Stephen D. Keener
Little League President and CE
