WBO is an amazing organization. They are a pillar within our Tulsa community, and they have such a heart for our city's youth. Our family met Jerry Jacobson and his team through baseball lessons and we were immediately impressed and moved by how this group donates their time and resources to kids. They sponsor several overseas mission trips each year. So their impact in children's lives is much broader than just our city. Jerry and his team are truly a quality group.

WBO and Jerry Jacobson have been nothing but a blessing to our family. We moved to the area from FL about 1 year ago and became involved with WBO when looking for athletic training for our 4 children (all of whom play baseball/softball). Not only did we find priceless instruction but a fantastic facility! The staff has always been helpful and what WBO does for children in need goes above and beyond. I'm proud to say I am affiliated with World Baseball Outreach.

World Baseball Outreach has been a blessing to our family. WBO has provided a facility for our kids to utilize and improve their baseball and softball skills keeping our kids active and off the streets. In addition, WBO has provided opportunities for our children to volunteer and help less fortunate children in our community and continue to grow their faith. The director Jerry Jacobson has been such a positive mentor to both our children over the past five years. We give thanks to WBO and Jerry Jacobson every year by contributing funds to a great organization
