The BASEPATH PROGRAM is a new program formed through an aligned vision and partnership between Pittsburgh Hardball Academy and The Neighborhood Academy. The program's mission is to grow participation, equity, diversity and inclusion in the sport of baseball while breaking down barriers to allow access to the many opportunities and life lessons that are introduced via America's pastime.
All Neighborhood Academy students are eligible to participate in the program, regardless of experience or skill level. To measure program performance, we will formally document participation and certain metrics of students who enroll in the BASEPATH PROGRAM, with the expectation to illustrate continued growth and progress.
By establishing this solid initial foundation of a “training hub” within The Neighborhood Academy’s athletic facility, the BASEPATH PROGRAM will create the only full-scale inner-city baseball training program with specialized programming of its type within the City of Pittsburgh. Our collective goal is to foster meaningful and lasting experiences that will catalyze measured successes on the field, in the classroom and in the community.
