On September 17th, 2015, Globe Life and the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation awarded grants to 10 non-profit organizations in Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana to support youth baseball and softball programs. The grant recipients were honored during a pre-game ceremony at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
Organizations were asked to complete a proposal describing how funding from the grant would allow them to give youth in their area the opportunity to play either baseball or softball. The winners were selected based on need and the ability of the proposed program to improve baseball programs in their local areas.
Globe Life President, Bill Leavell, said, "It's an honor for Globe Life to invest in the community by helping youth baseball and softball programs. Youth sports programs such as these help children develop essential skills such as a strong work ethic, drive, and ambition which will all make them better adults. Additionally, it's important for children to experience being part of a team so they learn how to work well with others toward common goals."
