See you at the ballpark!
He believed in RBI Austin before we had launched. When asked to speak at the inaugural RBI Austin benefit banquet in 2011, Coach Augie Garrido cheerfully accepted, noting his friendship with John Young, the founder of the original RBI program in South Central Los Angeles. Under Coach Garrido’s watch, Cal State Fullerton hosted one of the first ever RBI World Series in 1994.
At the 2011 and 2017 RBI Austin benefit banquets, Coach Garrido spoke about his journey growing up as an inner-city kid. He spoke to the challenges inner-city kids face, and the hope that caring coaches – or “teachers” as he liked to call them – could bring these kids through the game of baseball.
Coach Garrido got it. He understood why inner-city kids need consistent, enduring relationships with people who care about their life even more than their batting average.
We are thankful for Coach Garrido’s life and his indelible impact on others, and pray for the close ones he has left behind.
Thank you, Coach Garrido. You will be missed.
Hello RBI Austin family,
You read the headline correctly — we are thrilled to announce that through the Lord’s provision, RBI Austin now owns 33 acres of land in East Austin!
With a vision to make this a central RBI Austin hub for sports, mentoring, job training, and more, this land is located on Loyola Lane just east of 183, adjacent to the Colony Park neighborhood.
Join us in celebrating the Lord’s provision and pray for this future ‘home base’ for RBI Austin kids, families, and the greater Austin community to enjoy.
View the brief video above and stay tuned for more details further down the road, but in the meantime, please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for your continued support of our RBI Austin kids and for being with us as we enter into this exciting, new season.

New rule, new bats
New rule, new bats required
Anyone else feel like a little kid at Christmastime when they get something brand new? The newest iPhone, a new pair of shoes, a new gadget?
In light of the new USA Baseball bat regulations and as part of next week’s Amplify Austin, we need your help to provide one NEW bat to each of our 81 RBI Austin teams.
Not only will this provide a regulation bat for each team, it will also give our kids the joy and excitement of using a BRAND NEW bat — many for the first time!
Every $200 will provide a brand new bat for RBI Austin kids.
81 teams x $200 = $16,200 total need.
Help us get there! No donation amount is too small.
How to participate:
While Amplify Austin’s 24-hour clock does not start until next Thursday, March 1st at 6pm, you can schedule your gift TODAY — just click “Donate Now” on our Amplify Austin giving page.
A fresh haircut, a new suit jacket, hours of practicing his speech – none of these stopped the nerves from coming on Thursday morning.
“He was terrified. We didn’t know for sure how many people he would be speaking in front of, but I just kept encouraging him, ‘You can do it.’
So, when I saw my 12-year-old son on that stage talking to a ballroom filled with people, I teared up.
I can honestly say that was one of the moments I’ve been most proud of Leighton.
He was nervous the day of the event, but he had Booker’s support, Matt’s support, and my support. He did something he was scared of doing because he believes his story is important.”
Willie Mae, Leighton’s mom, reflected on the pride she had in her son as he presented during the 2018 Now at Bat program in front of 815 guests.
This is just one example of how service like yours is impacting East Austin families — giving a boy courage and a mother pride in her son.
Spending time with your RBI Austin kids can and will change lives.
Because of involvement like yours, someone is there to teach Leighton how to pick out a suit, how to practice public speaking, how to do things that push him out of his comfort zone.
More importantly, a positive, adult role model is speaking the love and grace of Jesus Christ into Leighton — motivating him and us to love others sacrificially.
