The San Pablo Baseball Association is seeking a sponsor for its 2016 season and has launched a gofundme fundraiser aiming to raise $10,000.

All funds raised will provide local inner-city youth from San Pablo, Richmond, El Cerrito, El Sobrante and other surrounding communities a healthy, supervised activity designed to keep them off the streets, the association said.

The league, which has an active board of directors, and dozens of coaches and mentors, serves about 150 youth and is staffed entirely by community volunteers. Thus, all funds go directly toward serving the youth.

“This year we will incorporate an Annual Health and Fitness Program, “Your Health is Your Wealth,” the association stated.

To read more, visit the gofundme page or follow the league on Facebook. Anyone with questions should not hesitate to contact Ron Gay at

  1. Hello San Pablo Baseball Association,

    The Oakland A’s were made aware of the break-in at your snack bar this past Monday night, we are so sorry to learn about this unfortunate incident. On behalf of the A’s, I want to reach out to your league to make you aware of Athletics Care, which is a new program the A’s launched in April to assist charities or individuals with the opportunity to setup a free fundraising page and 100% of the proceeds benefits the charity donated to and in some cases the A’s Community Fund matches the donation. If someone from your league could reach out to me, I would like to provide the information to assist your league with setting up the page and how we can help with getting donors to visit your page. My name is Detra Paige, I am the Director of Community Relations for the A’s and my direct number at the A’s is 510-563-2241, email is Looking forward to hearing from someone soon. The date of this response is Friday, June 3rd.. With regards,
    Detra Paige
