“The JP4 Foundation is a critical component to baseball in our community for the opportunities they offer young athletes in the state of Minnesota to not just play the game, but become better people in our society. The game isn’t just about wins and losses, it’s about values; teamwork, integrity, and life lessons. The JP4 Foundation helps make this happen, the belief that all kids should be afforded the right and opportunity to play the game they love, grow and develop as people and become the best versions of themselves in the process is what makes this Foundation so unique and important for baseball in our state of Minnesota.”
