T-Mobile is the official wireless provider of Major League Baseball, and for MLB All-Star Week, the company donated to Little League Baseball and Softball at this year’s T-Mobile Home Run Derby. MLB players drove the total higher with every dinger, as the company donated an extra $1,000 per home run and $5,000 per magenta bonus ball home run.
Funds raised went to help make local Little League programs more accessible for kids and families around the country through equipment grants and financial assistance to help make youth participation more affordable. This comes on top of the $100,000 T-Mobile and CEO John Legere donated in April to support local leagues rebuilding in Puerto Rico.
T-Mobile has also connected fans to the game with the T-Mobile Home Run Derby Bracket Challenge, the chance to meet MLB All-Stars, the opportunity to design their own free custom hats, a chance to get behind-the-scenes access, and more.
“We love showing up big for baseball fans, and at this year’s T-Mobile Home Run Derby, it’s no different,” says John Legere, T-Mobile CEO. “We’re all in, supporting our future baseball and softball sluggers with a $250,000-plus donation to Little League, making America’s game more accessible for kids and families around the country. And of course, we’re here for the fans, with so much fun on the ground in Cleveland and on social, so everyone can get in on the action. Let’s play ball!”

  • T-Mobile Home Run Derby Bracket Challenge. In the competition, fans could fill out a bracket for a chance to win $250,000.
