TYLER SKAGGS BATTING CAGES

As a young teen, Tyler played baseball at North Venice Little League. So, when the league needed money to help renovate its batting cages, the TSF was more than happy to provide $5,000 toward that effort. Today, the cages are known as the Tyler Skaggs Batting Cages.

HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP

We are thrilled to announce The Sparks Baseball Club, Barack Obama Charter School's first after school baseball program in South Los Angeles. The Sparks launched in the fall of 2021, with approximately 30 kids ranging from third to fifth grade. The TSF supplied uniforms and equipment, and redid the school's baseball field. Special thanks to Big League Impact and Players Trust for helping us make this happen! 

We've partnered with Santa Monica High School to provide a deserving student, Sean Garcia, with a scholarship to further his athletic and educational pursuits. Sean was a 2021 graduating senior who will go on to study Kinesiology. He plans to use the scholarship for tuition and school books. Thank you to the staff at Santa Monica High School and our incredible donors for making this possible!

TIDE TEAM SPONSORSHIP

The TSF sponsored a travel team of 12-year old athletes who competed in the week-long Youth Baseball Nationals Tournament. The TIDE program challenges their players to overcome adversity and build skills both on and off the diamond; they represent the dedication that Tyler often spoke about. TSF paid the team’s $7,000 entry fee for the tournament, greatly reducing costs for the families involved.
