CSP Hosting Youth Baseball and Softball Players During MLB All-Star Weekend
Concordia University will host more than 100 youth baseball and softball players participating in the sixth annual Jr. RBI Classic during MLB All Star-Week, July 10-15. CSP is providing housing and meals for all the players and staff, who are coming to the Twin Cities from Canada and around the United States.
The teams, part of MLB’s Reviving Baseball in Inner cities (RBI) program, will play a friendly, round-robin tournament on fields throughout St. Paul and Minneapolis, including nearby Dunning Field.
As part of their All-Star experience, the young participants will help give back by packing meals for families facing hunger with Kids Against Hunger, an international humanitarian food-aid organization whose goal is to end world hunger by providing nutritious food to hungry children and families in the United States and 60 countries around the world. The teams will be putting together the meals on Friday, July 11, at the Gangelhoff Center.
