Morgan Wallen Foundation Contributes $500K For Baseball & Softball Restoration Project
Morgan Wallen has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, the Major League Baseball & MLB Players Association Youth Development Foundation (MLB-MLBPA YDF) and other local funders, through his foundation, to lead the community revitalization of the historic Black baseball and softball complex, Parkwood Community Club, in Nashville. The entities joined forces to donate $500K each, totaling one million dollars invested in the project.
“I started the Morgan Wallen Foundation to support youth in two areas – sports and music. When I heard about Parkwood, right here in Nashville, I knew I wanted to help. Every child deserves a chance to play ball and be part of a team, and I truly appreciate this opportunity to be part of Parkwood’s next inning,” says Wallen. “I can’t wait to come back out here and see the park once it has been renovated.”
