International Stars Baseball Academy of Detroit, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization is a FREE baseball academy for Detroit youth. Our baseball academy does more than just baseball - we teach important life skills, leadership training, provide mentoring, and we offer legitimate educational and career advancement opportunities through our life changing College Showcase event.
THE International Stars College Showcase has been a premier event in helping young baseball players from across the globe achieve their dreams of playing college and professional baseball since 2013. By connecting college coaches and MLB scouts directly to players, who would otherwise not be seen, we have assisted over 70 players in securing college scholarship opportunities and MLB contracts. This year we are bringing the Showcase to Detroit, and partnering with Full Count Foundation to continue our collective work in helping inner-city youth with more impactful opportunities.
This is a ground-breaking event for Detroit kids and the greater Detroit community and will be held at the Corner Ballpark (old Tiger Stadium) on Friday August 21st from 10am to 4pm. But in order for this to happen and also ensure participants and their families don't have to pay we need to raise $4,500 in the next week. Funding will go towards purchasing equipment and uniforms for participants; time for our highly qualified staff to conduct athletic training and also mentor and advise participants on college process; purchasing supplies such as food and beverage for event; paying coaches and staff costs; production of high quality live-streaming and video-editing for colleges that can’t attend; and also paying travel expenses for NCAA coaches from across the U.S. to attend (in accordance with NCAA rules).
All donations/sponsorships are tax deductible in accordance with IRS code 501(c)3
