Community & Grants
In 2018, join us at our annual night of giving. The 3 Up 3 Down Organization will host a night of baseball related activities at Dutchess Stadium on Friday Night July 27th. That night, we will donate at least $12,000 back to the Hudson Valley through grants. Eight youth leagues will be selected to receive a minimum $500 grants (ranging up to $2,000) and three other non-profit organizations (Green Chimneys, The Anderson Center for Autism, Blue Path Service Dogs, and the Fragile X Research Foundation will also receive $1,000 grants as well).
2018 Community Baseball Grant Process
Our 2018 grant process will be open April 1st and close May 31st. If you feel you have a youth league worthy of a grant to support their youth league initiatives, please have them contact us at HVMSBL@3U3D.org and a grant application will be sent. Grant recipients will be announced on our site on June 15, 2018 and receive their grant at our banner check presentation at Dutchess Stadium on July 27th.
