The Campaign

In 2021, JMS League is partnering with the Masumeen Muslim Food Bank for a campaign we’re calling “Bank Our Bases”.

We’re asking players, fans, and really anyone interested to pledge an amount for each base achieved by batters during the JMS League Playoff Weekend – August 7th and 8th. We’re recommending a donation somewhere between 5¢ and $1, but feel free to go more or less or whatever you’re comfortable with. Then watch the playoffs, or check out the website (or JMS Whatsapp News group) during playoff weekend to see how many bases we get.

Example

So let’s break down an example so everyone understands. Let’s say I pledge 5¢ a base.

  • A single and walk is worth 1 base (We’re including walks in our total bases calculation
  • A double is worth 2 bases
  • A triple is worth 3 bases
  • A home run is worth 4 bases
  • In 2019, there were 808 total bases achieved during the playoff weekend.
  • That 5¢ pledge would work out to a donation of $40.40 for you.
  • Your pledge gets multiplied by the total number of bases achieved by every player in the league throughout playoff weekend

If 20 players pledge 5¢ each ($1 per base total), then in 2019 we would have raised $808 for the Masumeen Muslim Food Bank!!

Every contribution helps make sure that families in the community are getting the food they desperately need. Watch this page for the total number of pledge’s we’ve collected. So if you’re a player in the league get as many hits as you can so we can drive up the donation amount from each pledge. Every base supports the food bank!

When the playoffs are over, we’ll publish the final number of bases and reach out to everyone that pledged their amount. We’ll ask you to make your contribution directly to the Masumeen Muslim Food Bank, donations will be eligible for a taxable receipt.

So let’s get started, let’s get as many pledges as we can so that we can use this year’s playoff weekend as a way to make a difference. Fill out the form below to register your pledge.
