CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
A free, year-round baseball and softball program for kids and teens is coming to Cincinnati.
Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig announced on Wednesday that the MLB is donating $1.5 million for the newest Urban Youth Academy in Cincinnati. It will be the seventh in Major League Baseball, and the first in the Midwest.
The state-of-the-art facility will provide free baseball and softball instruction and education programs to Greater Cincinnati youth, ages 6-18.
The academy will be located in Roselawn, on land donated by the City of Cincinnati. The complex will have four renovated fields and a 33,000 square foot building with batting cages, pitching tunnels and a full indoor field.
"Our Academy will instill life values in the children of Cincinnati and provide valuable perspective on opportunities in baseball and beyond," said Selig.
Former Red, and MLB Executive Vice President of Baseball Development, Frank Robinson will lead the Academy.
"It's personally special to be a part of bringing this Academy to Cincinnati to make a difference in the lives of the youth of this region," said Robinson.
The Cincinnati's Urban Youth Academy will join other facilities currently in California, Puerto Rico, Houston, New Orleans, and future sites in Florida and Pennsylvania.
Cincinnati's groundbreaking is scheduled for August 2013, expected to be completed by Spring of 2015.
