The Marvin Freeman Youth Foundation Inc. was founded in 2018 by former major league baseball player Marvin Freeman. MFYF is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. MFYF is committed to making a positive impact in the lives of youth. Mentoring and aiding underserved youth in education and sports. We promote youth participation in baseball by funding personalized baseball training and education scholarships to ensure youth development. We sponsor baseball camps for underprivileged youth to give them the opportunity to compete in competitive baseball leagues. We provide life skills mentoring to develop character on and off the field. Marvin's love and passion for the game of baseball are only exceeded by his dedication to the underprivileged youth that we serve. Marvin's major league career spanned 10 years. He played for the Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Colorado Rockies, and Chicago White Sox. Marvin began his professional career in 1984 after being drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the second round of that year's amateur draft out of Jackson State University where he excelled as a scholar athlete. Marvin was later inducted into the Jackson State University Hall of Fame. He was originally drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1981. Marvín made his major league debut in 1986 and won his first game against the New York Mets on September 21st.
