The Sports Boosters of Maryland’s mission is to promote the advancement and enjoyment of amateur and professional sports for youths and adults and to provide related educational and charitable services. Six decades ago, a group of men from the Baltimore area wanted to use their love of sports to help make a difference in children’s lives. The Sports Boosters of Maryland, which runs entirely with the help of volunteer members who give personal donations each year as well as fundraising events, was born. Members of the Sports Boosters have been an integral part of the local and regional sports scene for more than 60 years, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to promote children’s sports programs. Founded in 1950, money raised has provided initial funding to assist local organizations with the purchase of uniforms, equipment, scoreboards, field prep and numerous other needs.
