The Colombian Baseball Foundation (CBF) was founded by Mike Toomey, KC Royals Special Assistant to the GM, Carlos Chavarria, President/CEO, EDI Sports, and Rafael Miranda, KC Royals Scout in Colombia in 2006, a non-profit baseball organization that offers Colombian children and youth an opportunity to receive quality instruction and life skills fundamentals in a safe and fun environment.
Our mission is to prepare Colombian kids and youth toward raising their skill level and preparing them for the future by teaching life's core values.
Our ultimate goal is to have a complete baseball academy that serves kids throughout the country. A CBF Academy that has the infrastructure to provide the necessary resources, such as baseball/training equipment, education materials, computers, health care, room and board.
Funding is necessary to provide essential needs, such as bats, balls, helmets, uniforms, field maintenance, umpire fees, league and travel expenses.
The CBF operates out of the stadium Rafael Naar in the town of Turbaco, north of the Caribbean city of Cartagena which is filled with fanatical and passionate fans and kids who have a great desire to participate in local baseball youth leagues. Under the guidance and supervision of Rafael Miranda, our baseball programs and participation continue to strive and grow. Through hard work, dedication, loyalty and respect for the game, the CBF continues to succeed.
