About Us

The P&G Cincinnati MLB Urban Youth Academy is the sixth facility to join Major League Baseball's Urban Youth Academy movement. The Reds Community Fund began providing a fall and winter Academy curriculum in the fall of 2009 and featured attendance of more than 5,600 in 2013-2014.

Major League Baseball's Urban Youth Academy program aims to set the standard for baseball and softball instruction, teach and educate in Urban America, and enhance the quality of life in the surrounding communities. Major League Baseball has set out four facets to the Urban Youth Initiative:

  • Grow the games of baseball and softball while cultivating diversity in all aspects of the game
  • Make meaningful contributions to the development of urban communities
  • Provide safe and organized recreational activities for urban youth
  • Prepare urban high school players for college and professional baseball and softball programs

The coaching staff consists of highly experienced baseball and softball personnel. Each Academy specializes in fundamental instruction by way of open workouts. Workouts provide members with practical and theoretical training on the fundamentals of the game, while the educational and vocational components benefit student-athletes, coaches and other adults and community members. Major League Baseball believes that the skills learned in baseball and softball can be applied beyond the field, helping to shape a better community.
