The Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF) is a joint initiative between Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association designed to promote the growth of youth baseball and softball throughout the world by awarding grants to support field renovation and construction projects, equipment and uniform purchases, coaches training material and other selected program expenses. Since its formation by the MLBPA and MLB in 1999, BTF has awarded over 1,000 grants totaling more than $34 million to non-profit and tax-exempt organizations in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Asia.

In 2017, BTF awarded 68 grants totaling $2.6 million. BTF/MLB Equipment Day collections took place in 22 MLB cities. Twelve MLB Clubs hosted field maintenance clinics attracting more than 600 local baseball/softball coaches, administrators and maintenance staff persons. BTF also relaunched its blog, BTF Today, providing grant writing assistance and nonprofit resource information for youth baseball and softball organizations. Information about BTF can be found at
