ABOUT THE JBF
The Junior Baseball Federation of Philadelphia helps advance personal and communal growth opportunities through direct support of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation (PPR) conducted baseball and softball activities. Through a partnership with the Philadelphia Phillies, the JBF provides opportunities and resources that promote each participant’s athletic, social, and physical well-being.
The JBF has been able to carry out its mission through the generosity of individuals and organizations. Youth programs around the City have benefited most significantly from proceeds realized from the annual JBF Benefit Baseball game.
The JBF develops the resources needed to provide program support primarily through the sale of ticket vouchers that are redeemable for one of five regular season Phillies games at Citizens Bank Park. By either purchasing vouchers for personal use or donating vouchers for use by PPR camp programs, you will provide City kids with the excitement of attending a Major League Baseball game as well as making our kids feel like “big-leaguers” at their own local ballfields.
We envision youth throughout the City of Philadelphia unconditionally engaged in accessible and high-quality baseball and softball programs that intentionally promote each participant’s athletic, social,
and physical well-being.
We advance personal and communal growth opportunities through direct support of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation conducted baseball and softball activities. The Junior Baseball Federation provides this support without regard to participants’ race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, religion or religious creed, gender, gender identity, or any other characteristic protected under applicable federal, state or local law.
We develop the necessary resources for such purposes through a collaborative partnership with the Philadelphia Phillies and the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Department as well as through philanthropic donations and individual contributions.
