Baseball Saves the World.

Baseball Legends Foundation (BLF) is the non-profit organization for supporting charitable activities performed by Japanese professional baseball players and teams. We also serve the community with our own social actions related to baseball.

Baseball as what we need in life.

To be something more than entertainment, we will create the society where more people are saved by the existence of baseball.

Our actions

Supporting charitable activities of Japanese professional baseball players and teams

We plan, suggest and organize the charitable projects for the players and the teams, and operate them throughout the baseball season or during the off-season.

Serving the community with our own actions related to baseball

Once a year, we hold an online charity auction for helping those impacted by natural disasters. We also support adapted sports such as wheelchair softball, and provide resources to help the disabled become socially independent.

Founder’s Message

Working as a sports writer in Tokyo for more than 10 years, I have recognized the importance of social role performed by the professional athletes, especially when I experienced the case of Boston Strong by Red Sox in 2013. I was very impressed with the power of baseball outside the field, and I strongly felt that we also needed more of this essence in Japanese baseball. Back in Tokyo in 2014, I founded BLF to create the society where more people are saved by the professional baseball players and teams. I hope our actions will make baseball what people need in life.
