Making the Game Count for Kids!
“This is the most important thing I've ever done!”
- Garth Brooks

Teammates for Kids began in 1999 with the love and support of 67 Major League Baseball players who made a pledge to help kids.

Since then, over 4,700 professional athletes from baseball, football, basketball, hockey, soccer, rodeo and racing have joined our team.
"Once a Teammate ... Always a Teammate"

100% of All Money Donated Goes to the Kids
Quite simply, Teammates for Kids exists to do everything we can to help kids. It’s that simple and that important! We accomplish our goals by partnering professional athletes, corporations, celebrities and now, for the first time, individuals from the private sector.

Because the foundation’s overhead expenses are privately funded, 100% of all money donated goes to the kids.

That’s not the goal ... it’s the rule!

Teammate Lorenzen Throws No-Hitter
Michael Lorenzen throws 14th no-hitter in Philadelphia Phillies history.
A Teammate since 2016, Lorenzen struck out five, walked four and improved to 2-0 since he was acquired from Detroit at the trade deadline. The crowd of 30,406 erupted when a fly ball was caught to end his first career complete game in 2 hours and 9 minutes, he was then mobbed by his teammates in a rowdy celebration near the plate. An All-Star this season for the Tigers, Lorenzen proved he can play a key role in leading the Phillies back to the postseason. Later, he left Citizens Bank Park with an amazing souvenir from the no-no: Philadelphia’s grounds crew dug up the rubber and presented it the pitcher in the clubhouse. CONGRATULATIONS MICHAEL … we are proud to call you a Teammate!
