FirstSwing to Hanoi

For a tenth straight year, FirstSwing is sending a group of families and youth baseball players to Hanoi to serve as ambassadors for the United States and the game of baseball. Through its partnership with the Hanoi Youth Baseball Club, the group will provide a series of clinics and deliver supplies/goods to a number of schools in Hanoi and surrounding areas, nurturing existing and developing new relationships through the game of baseball. Your tax deductible donation will help offset the cost of this trip for the families, and empower FirstSwing to reach even further around the world with it's mission!

The FirstSwing Foundation is a Washington state 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that was created in 2002 in order to teach youth “life’s little lessons” within the fun and exciting environment of baseball and softball. The Foundation’s basic belief is sport(s) is a process and not an end in itself, and that youngsters will learn many life skills by playing and competing. FirstSwing is committed to teaching ALL youngsters, especially the physically and financially challenged, to learn and love the game, and to provide them with positive role models and quality instruction.
