Behind the Scenes: Project Béisbol

“Project Beisbol is a nonprofit organization started by Malvern alumni Justin Halladay ’95, and it is primarily located in Columbia. I would say its [Project Beisbol] mission is to expand baseball and make it an international sport. The second piece is to expand communities through baseball. We use baseball as an opportunity to engage kids who may not have access to sports and engage them in educational opportunities. In Columbia, they have a lot of growth, and they work with kids in communities that may not have a lot. We saw an effort to expand and achieve both goals in Brazil. We wanted to introduce those people to baseball,” Vithayathil said.
