Keeper of The Game

“The mission of Keeper of The Game is to provide kids and young adults with special needs and disabilities unique baseball experiences that foster the growth of those individuals and their love of baseball. Keeper of The Game promotes programs that allow these athletes to play, watch and experience baseball at a very personal level. This is all done with a focus on advancing servant leadership.”

Keeper of The Game will be featured during the Texas Rangers Triple-A Affiliate’s game against the Reno Aces (Arizona Diamondbacks) on Saturday, July 28 at 7:05 p.m. at Dell Diamond.
