Pepco has joined the Cleveland Indians organization in utilizing baseball to strengthen youth service initiatives that focus on education, health and fitness.
As a Cleveland Indians Community partner, Pepco will help Cleveland Indians Charities work toward achieving its goals of preparing youth for successful lives, while improving the quality of and creating a sustainable plan for baseball and softball programs in Greater Cleveland.
As a Community Partner, Pepco will be involved with Cleveland Indians Charities to assist with the following programs:
- Tribe Scholars promotes youth education in underserved inner-city and inner-ring suburban schools by offering unique baseball experiences to students who strive for academic excellence.
- Career Day at Progressive Field invites Cleveland Baseball Federation and Cleveland Metropolitan School District baseball and softball players to visit the Indians Executive Offices, where they are exposed to various departments required to run a baseball organization.
- Fields for the Future is a program on which the Indians, Community Partners, the city of Cleveland and Business Volunteers Unlimited improve fields that are in poor condition and heavily used. Tribe catcher Yan Gomes will continue to serve as the spokesperson for the Fields of the Future renovation program.
- Indians Youth Baseball Summer Camps provide players, parents and coaches with programming and resources focused on developing fundamental skills, knowledge of baseball and positive character traits.
CIC and its Community Partners will continue to support the Cleveland Baseball Federation and Cleveland Metropolitan School District baseball and softball, working toward creating a sustainable plan for baseball and softball in the city. The Indians provide baseball and softball programming to 3,300 Cleveland youth athletes per year at no cost. Athletes and teams receive uniforms, equipment, fields and coaching clinics.
Pepco is proud to support this special program and looks forward to building meaningful relationships in the community.
