The Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation has announced a five-year, $500,000 commitment to Little League Baseball and Softball, in support of its local districts and leagues across the country. The grant award, made under the foundation’s Sports Matter initiative, will help provide facility improvements, uniforms and equipment to local Little League programs in need. The commitment is part of a broader partnership between Dick’s and Little League International under which the company will serve as the official and exclusive partner to provide technology services for its districts and leagues. Since 2014, Dick’s and the Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation have pledged more than $50 million to support teams in need, while raising money and awareness for the youth sports funding crisis.
