THE BASEBALL HERITAGE MUSEUM RECEIVES FUNDING

FROM THE LARRY DOBY YOUTH FUND

Cleveland, OH, April 25, 2017– The Baseball Heritage Museum, located at 6601 Lexington
Avenue at Historic League Park, is thrilled to announce that they are one of the 18 recipients of
funding through the Larry Doby Youth Fund at the Cleveland Foundation. The fund was created
by Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona and members of the 2016 American League
Champion Indians, who encouraged the entire roster, coaches, clubhouse support staff, front
office and general public to donate to the cause. Contributions were also made by team owner
Paul Dolan and minority owner John Sherman, and the organization additionally donated
monies raised from the 2016 postseason watch parties. The Larry Doby Youth Fund was created
to support Northeast Ohio community organizations that provide educational assistance and
resources to help curb youth violence. The Museum will use its funding to launch League Park
Academy, an ongoing educational initiative that will teach students k-12 that the lessons of
baseball- hard work, team work, perseverance, and belief in oneself – are also the lessons of
success in life. League Park Academy will launch in June 2017. For more information, please
