Badges for Baseball is a program that was brought to Wisconsin last year and is a partnership between Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and the Cal Ripken Senior Foundation. In the first year, the program provided between 700 and 800 young children in Milwaukee the opportunity to build character and learn life's critical lessons while being mentored by public safety officials in each of the police districts throughout the City of Milwaukee. After the initial success of 2009, the program expanded to include young children in the Fox Valley area.


More details will be available the week of the July 8 game.
