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.”


The Keeper of The Game Foundation is pleased to announce a $1,000 donation to Baylor Baseball in honor of legendary coach Mickey Sullivan. The funds will help support the Bears’ continued community service efforts.
An on-field check presentation will be made prior to Baylor’s Big 12 series-opening game against Oklahoma State on May 11 at Baylor Ballpark in Waco, Texas.
The late coach Sullivan has a special place in the heart of Keeper of The Game Founder James Vilade, who is currently an assistant coach for Oklahoma State. Vilade played under Sullivan at Baylor and was a member of the Bears’ 1993 Southwest Conference championship squad. He was also a team captain for Baylor in 1995 – the same year he graduated from the university.
“It is exciting to be able to donate funds that will continue to support the mission of Baylor Baseball and its extended reach in the community,” Vilade said. “To do this while recognizing legendary Baylor coach Mickey Sullivan allows us to honor the past and support the future.”
The Baylor baseball team recently hosted more than 200 ballplayers from the Little League Challenger Division, which is open to children with physical or mental challenges that prevent them from playing baseball/softball on a competitive team. To see coverage of the event, click here.
