Big League Impact
In 2013, Big League Impact hosted its inaugural fantasy football event, Waino’s World, and raised more than $110,000 for St. Louis area nonprofit Operation Food Search and international clean water engineering organization Water Mission. The year was so successful that Wainwright invited other professional baseball players to join him and host leagues in their hometowns. Since 2013, Big League Impact and its community of professional athletes, musicians, and other public figures have raised over $5,800,000 for charitable causes and foundations through events that raise awareness and donations from local philanthropists who are drawn to the causes our players care about. We have worked with over 80 MLB players, and hosted over 200 campaigns and events. For years, Big League Impact has had success bringing awareness to causes that align with its mission and raising dollars to support them.

Teammates for Kids began in 1999 with the love and support of 67 Major League Baseball players who made a pledge to help kids. Since then, over 4,700 professional athletes from baseball, football, basketball, hockey, soccer, rodeo and racing have joined our team. "Once a Teammate ... Always a Teammate"
The world is hungry, but the emptiness goes far beyond the table. The need is physical and spiritual. People hunger for opportunity, starve for resources, and have been stripped of value. These injustices keep us up at night.
