RBI Indianapolis prides itself on making the RBI experience affordable to its players. No player is charged more than $25 to play in the league and many play for free. Sponsorships and fundraisers help cover the costs of the tournament travel.
RBI Indianapolis will select five all-star teams to represent Indy this July in the RBI Regional Tournament in Detroit and the Metropolitan Junior Baseball League Inner City Classic in Chicago. For many of these kids, this trip may be their first time out of the state or even the city…an exciting, yet daunting experience. So, although winning the tournaments is a goal, the road trip is more important.
Current Major League Baseball players and Indiana natives Drew Storen (Washington Nationals), Tucker Barnhart (Cincinnati Reds) and Kyle Gibson (Minnesota Twins) return to Indianapolis for a special MLB Player Meet & Greet. The event was a fundraiser to support the RBI Indianapolis programs with many current RBI and Jr. RBI players in attendance. Play Ball Indiana board member and voice of 1070 The Fan Greg Rakestraw moderated the Q & A session which included questions from the audience ranging on various topics about what it takes to play in the major leagues as well as some of their personal experiences growing up and being a fan of the game.
