Ticket sales include a $50 tax deductible donation to the APBPA (We are a 501-C3 Charity Organization Tax ID #95-0510350) to help support our mission of helping former Ballplayers everywhere we can and to help them not suffer physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially. We also help current players with benefits such as free and experienced mentors, free sobriety resources, free compressed business and life skills education from former MLB pitcher Mark Acre, free and reduced cost stem cell treatments, and a healing therapy utilizing microcurrent technology from former pitcher Kameron Loe.

The Association was formed in Los Angeles in 1924 when twelve former players gathered and determined there was a need to assist the less fortunate members of the baseball profession. Since then, the Association has grown to over 101,000 current members. ​

Since its inception in 1924 the Association has provided temporary financial assistance in excess of $5 million to over 3,600 current and ex-professional players, coaches, umpires, scouts, and trainers. Major League Baseball and the National Association of the Minor Leagues have endorsed the Association as their benevolent organization and recognize the important role the Association plays in helping those ballplayers in need.

We look forward to seeng you in Arizona!!!
