The Memphis communities have not played inner-city baseball over the past 20 to 25 years even though it is a major sport. The goal of the TSYBA Committee is to ”Bring Baseball Back to the Communities.” In doing so, we will reduce crime in our neighborhoods; because our children will have a constructive outlet when school is out for summer vacation. Also, we will help to restore discipline, respect and love for the game of baseball.
Tri-State Youth Baseball Academy is dedicated to saving our young male and female African Americans, Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian or any color or creed. Our neighborhoods have deteriorated because of a lack of love respect and male family figures. By re-introducing baseball to the communities, we will restore discipline, respect and love for the game of baseball. This program will incorporate school tutoring, church attendance and respect for adults and self.
