The Rod Dedeaux Foundation is partnered with USA Baseball to host the Golden Spikes Award. The organization is the national governing body for amateur baseball in the U.S. and selects and trains the World Baseball Classic and Pan American teams, the Collegiate, 18U, 15U, 12U, Women’s National country, and international competitions each year.

USA Baseball is responsible for promoting and developing the game of baseball on the grassroots level and governs more than 12 million amateur players in ballparks and playgrounds across the country.

The Dedeaux Foundation, in conjunction with USA Baseball, renovates local urban baseball fields and maintains them for the community and development of our youth.
