The Players Alliance
OUR TEAM IS FOCUSED ON BUILDING EQUITABLE SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY OF DIVERSITY THROUGHOUT BASEBALL. By dedicating ourselves to this cause, players are committing our personal time and energy to build a stronger and more successful game for the future. To create an inclusive culture within baseball and the community, where differences are leveraged to elevate racial equality and provide greater opportunities for the Black community, both in our game and the places we live in, play in, and care about most.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Harry Wachtel, his lawyer and counselor during the civil rights movement, the Drum Major Institute carries Dr. King’s work and vision of radical nonviolence into the 21st century, democratizing it for all people. DMI leads through collaboration by convening leaders and organizations to identify common sense solutions to our most pressing problems.
