Diamonds in the Rough

Each year, Jays Care Foundation partners with Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCH) and Boys and Girls Club of Canada (BGCC) to operate the Rookie League program.

Rookie League is a grass roots program which utilizes the game of baseball as an ambassador for children to be physically active, learn about team work and cooperation, as well as build self-esteem. Toronto Blue Jays players Ricky Romero, Rajai Davis, J.P. Arencibia, Brett Lawrie and Colby Rasmus serve as Honourary Division Captains. All program sites are provided with shirts, hats, equipment and baseball support to facilitate programming. In 2012, Jays Care Foundation served over 4,400 children and youth through Rookie League.
