Press Release – MiLB x Safe At Home Partnership

Minor League Baseball and Joe Torre Safe At Home Partner to End the Cycle of Violence and Save Lives

NEW YORK, July 9, 2024 — For the eighth year, Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) and Joe Torre Safe At Home have teamed up to raise awareness about violence and abuse and to empower fans at MiLB ballparks to join them in building a safer, braver world together. More than 45 MiLB teams will participate in this year’s in-ballpark initiative from June 9 – September 2, 2024.  

This summer at select MiLB games, each participating team will raffle or auction off a Joe Torre autographed baseball with proceeds benefitting Safe At Home. Additionally, fans in attendance will receive a Topps® card pack including a Safe At Home Topps® card, featuring Joe Torre’s personal story. To support the initiative, teams will make public address announcements dedicated to ending domestic violence, provide educational materials to fans, and share the news on social media.  

“Millions are exposed to violence, trauma, and abuse every year. It is vital that we raise awareness and that they have access to support,” said Joe Torre, baseball Hall of Famer and co-founder and co-chair, Safe At Home. “We are proud to partner with Minor League Baseball and Topps to educate and inspire MiLB fans to make a difference and join us in cultivating a new generation of healthy, respectful relationships, where everybody feels safe at home. Join us in building a safer, braver world together.”

More than 20 years ago, Ali and Joe Torre founded Safe At Home to end the cycle of violence and abuse through education. Today, with education as its foundation, in schools and beyond, it strengthens every person’s courage, knowledge, and resilience through healthy relationship building, coping and self- care tools, and accessible resources. It teaches children, families, and communities to be changemakers who build a world free from harm. Through its Margaret’s Place model, named in honor of Joe’s mother, Safe at Home creates a safe space in schools, offering both trauma informed intervention and prevention services for empowerment, education, and understanding.  Safe at Home currently has 20 Margaret’s Place sites that operate in New York and Westchester, NY; Los Angeles, CA; Cincinnati, OH; and Tahiti, French Polynesia. This school year, Margaret’s Place programs have reached 21,394 students, and since its inception, Safe At Home has served more than 181,000 youth, their families and communities. 

“At Safe At Home, we teach children, families, and communities to be changemakers, to embrace the shared responsibility of care and respect,” added Ali Torre, co-founder and president, Safe At Home. “Through education, counseling, training, and leadership, everyone learns how to show up and support each other. Safe At Home is cultivating a new generation of healthy, respectful relationships, paving the way for generations to come.”
