Grand Opening

“The opening of the Baseball Academy in Compton is an important and historic development for Major League Baseball. There is nothing we value more than increasing interest and participation in baseball among the youth of our country, particularly among those who live in inner-cities. We in Major League Baseball recognize our role and responsibility as a social institution, and if we are going to meet the expectations of our fans in this area of diversity and equality, this platform – the Baseball Youth Academy – is a very significant step.”

Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig
