The American Baseball Foundation’s 21st Lead Off Dinner Tuesday, March 15, 2022 features Oakland Athletics Designated Hitter Mitch Moreland

The ABF’s 21st annual Lead Off Dinner will now be held on the evening of March 15th, 2022. The idea and hope in this change is additional time for the prevalence of COVID-19 cases to reduce. We want all guests to feel comfortable and enjoy what will be a great evening at The Club in Birmingham, AL. 

The ABF understands and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause among our sponsors, donors, and potential attendees. We ask for your understanding, as we continue our mission to raise funds and expand support for our outreach to children.

Why we need you

The American Baseball Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that was founded in 1994 by world-renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James R. Andrews.

The ABF Lead Off Dinner supports the ABF BASIC programming that takes place year around. Using sports as the vehicle to attract at-risk children, our BASIC program has demonstrated repeated success in improving reading and math levels among our students. Our record over the last eight years in which we have used the same testing mechanism for reading and math, shows on average 2.5 months gain in reading and 4.0 months gain in math. Our students know that they can overcome learning deficiencies. The American Baseball Foundation’s 21st Lead Off Dinner Friday, February 4, 2022 features Oakland Athletics Designated Hitter Mitch Moreland.
