EIF Major Sponsors
For more than a century, Major League Baseball has been an integral part of society. America has embraced baseball as its national pastime throughout the game's unparalleled history. As a social institution with important responsibilities, Major League Baseball realizes that this mantle affords special opportunities.
MLB is honored to make community service and social responsibility a part of all that Major League Baseball stands for to generate awareness and heighten the social consciousness of the importance of giving back.
As part of that obligation, Major League Baseball recognizes and appreciates the enormous sacrifice made by the brave men and women in our armed forces with their Welcome Back Veterans initiative.
With the ability to reach millions of patriotic Americans at ballparks, on television and through the Internet, MLB hopes to showcase this very important issue and help our veterans in their transition from the battlefield back to their lives at home.
