The Rod Dedeaux Foundation was formed to continue Rod’s spirit, by supporting youth baseball and softball programs in underserved areas.


Currently, inner city organizations are fighting for survival, as public funding is drying up – coupled with the game’s waning popularity with children in Urban areas. Through the efforts of the Foundation, underprivileged youth receive more than just uniforms and renovated facilities – they also receive a sanctuary from challenging environments and a support system specifically designed to build character and academic support, giving them an opportunity to achieve their dreams.
