Our Kids Need Your Help!

Since the late 1950’s, the B-Buzz Baseball League has established a rich legacy of community empowerment using baseball as a catalyst to support traditionally disadvantaged Cleveland area youth. Over the years, our League has produced professional athletes, politicians, community activists and world-recognized celebrities by fostering sportsmanship, healthy competition and a supportive atmosphere that leverages raw talent and builds qualities of leadership and a sense of community.

In our 10th year, we need your support to continue our legacy and expand our vision of promoting self-performance improvement through athletic fundamentals, teamwork, leadership, self-discipline, integrity, and sportsmanship all while enjoying the game of baseball.

Our main purpose is to use baseball as a vehicle to foster positive character development, academic achievement, and improve the health among the youth living in our community.

Your generous support will help us to fulfill our goal of building a state-of-the-art youth baseball complex designed to fulfill the league's mission and bring the community together through the sport of baseball.

Proposed Ballfield & Complex / Why We Need Your Support

Our Board of Directors has approved and is proposing to build a state-of-the-art baseball complex with the help of various funding sources to be completed by 2025/2026 with 4 astroturf ballfields (Age Appropriate) which would avoid the game cancellations we experience, allow our season to begin a month earlier and also this would keep our young adults engaged that much longer during the summer months all while providing a safe space and proper adequate playing conditions for years to come.

Along with the ballfields. we are also looking to construct a two-story modular structure that will house our field maintenance/team equipment, restrooms, concession stand, indoor batting cages, weight conditioning, fielding training areas and outdoor fitness zone, but most importantly, this structure will give our educational/social resource partners the classroom and activity space they need to provide their complimentary services for our players and their families, all while enclosed behind a 15-foot-high gated off fenced in area to provide the safety and security needed for everyone.
