MLB’s Access Innovation Fund

Join us in celebrating the partnership between the King County Play Equity Coalition, the Seattle Mariners, and Major League Baseball (MLB) dedicated to breaking down barriers to play equity through MLB’s Access Innovation Fund!

During All Star Week in Seattle, the Center for Leadership in Athletics’ Cha Cha Sawyer and Dr. Julie McCleery, were joined by Nova Newcomer, the Mariners director of community relations and the Mariners Care foundation, and Harold Reynolds, Mariners legend, on an extraordinary panel! They discussed how this fund will increase participation in youth baseball and softball.
