An active community is a healthy community. It is one that offers youth the chance to play, supports the civic spirit of sportsmanship and encourages members of the community to become active in children's lives as coaches, mentors, caretakers and allies.
The goal of the Cubs Charities Diamond Project is to expand opportunities for children to play baseball and softball, create or preserve green space in underserved neighborhoods and to foster a love for the game.
