Kennewick American Youth Baseball Association, in partnership with the Tri-City Union Gospel Mission, is proud to announce the Homerun for the Hungry campaign.  The goal of this campaign is to help grow our players into our community's future leaders by way of teaching them the value of service.  With this we hope to instill sportmanship that extends beyond their play on the ballfield.  Your $20.00 donation will provide healthy and warm meals to those in need and fund KAYB's unsupported costs. For each $20.00 raised, you will provide a meal for 4 people and support our youth baseball league.  Our goal is to provide 10,000 meals served out of the Tri-City Union Gospel Mission.
