While this job training program would be open to all participants that are interested our main focus would center on participants ages 16-22 years old, ex-offenders, high school dropouts, participants from low-income families and youth that have been a part of the juvenile detention system
We want this program to serve as an
introduction to the business opportunities in the sports market, TV and radio media, food service, accounting, business services, legal services, transportation, printing, social media and marketing etc., etc., etc.
We want to train the mindset of the participants in this program to take control of the economics opportunities set before them and within one's community
The concept of this league is a business venture tied to creating jobs, creation of wealth and to
create self-employed entrepreneurs through our job training program and a network
of partnerships and teamwork
Let me point out for the record that
this league in “NO WAY” will be limited to only African America players. We will seek out the best baseball players from across the United State and the World regardless of their ethnic back round
Over 1.2 trillion dollars in black wealth flows through the African America community annually
The African Americans churches spend over 300 billion dollars annually in this economy
The black dollar is an untapped dollar in the professional sports market
The creating of this professional baseball league would allow us tap into the flow of that 1.2 trillion dollars
in untapped wealth that flows through the black community annually
We project this professional baseball team would bring 100,000-500,000 people to the park annually
Not-for-profit job development and employment training program
The difference between our job training program and others is that we are able to train participants in-house and put them directly to work after their training
(within our structure/league)
We have the jobs to offer, after we provide the training
(Training and to work is our motto)
The NUPBL is designed to provide family entertainment and shed light on the unlimited financial opportunity that are available in the sports world both on and off the field
Baseball in our inner-cities are dying and we have to have an avenue to give African American baseball players something to look forward to. NUPBL would afford African American baseball players the opportunity to play baseball on a professional level while at the same time being financially compensated.
“A few years ago a little league baseball team from the Southside Chicago by the name of Jackie Robinson West captured the hearts and soul of the nation. Most importantly they captured the heart and soul of the African American community around the world. We want this league the Urban Professional Baseball League to capture the hearts and soul of the nation and mostly importantly the hearts and the souls of the African American community.
We are looking for excitement, enthusiasm and support from the African American Community for this league from the East, the West, the North and the South”
