In 2005, the Baseball Tomorrow Fund expanded its role by establishing BTF/MLB Equipment Day, a national initiative to encourage the collection and distribution of used equipment to organizations in need.
Each year, the fund collaborates with MLB Clubs to hold equipment drives at the stadiums where fans, front office staff and players are invited to donate new and used equipment to benefit a local organization.
In conjunction with each collection, the fund awards a $5,000 grant to a youth baseball or softball organization of the Club's choice.
