Hey, baseball fans of all ages -- tonight's the night! T-Mobile is donating at least a quarter million dollars to Little League® Baseball and Softball at the T-Mobile Home Run Derby. Home runs at the Derby will drive the total higher…$1K per home run and $5K per home run with a magenta ball during bonus time. And whether in Cleveland or at home, T-Mobile packs on the fun for all fans!
Big Love for Little League®
We've got big league love for Little League® teams. T-Mobile is the Official Wireless Provider of Major League Baseball, and we're going BIG by donating at least $250K to Little League Baseball and Softball at this year's T-Mobile Home Run Derby. $250K goes a loooong way to help more kids play America's game…and that means a better connection to community, hard work and sportsmanship.
MLB players can drive the total higher with every dinger, as the Un-carrier will donate an extra $1K per home run and $5K per magenta bonus ball home run – which could be more than $450K if players hit even as many regulation home runs as they did last year! Funds raised will help make local Little League programs more accessible for kids and families around the country through equipment grants and financial assistance to help make youth participation more affordable. This comes on top of the $100K T-Mobile and CEO John Legere donated in April to support local leagues rebuilding in Puerto Rico.
We're especially excited to see what's happening at the Home Run Derby Participant Magenta Lounges, two on-field lounges that will bring fans up close and personal with the game at the T-Mobile Home Run Derby. Follow @TMobile on Twitter and Instagram to scope out Little Leaguers® interviewing MLB All-Stars, get an inside peek behind the scenes of America's game and more, and stay tuned for donation totals. Root toot toot for those home runs!
