Opening Day 2024: Masons4Mitts Returns for 16th Season!

Opening Day is finally here! And with that, so too is our 2024 Masons4Mitts season.

Now in its 16th year, Masons4Mitts has raised more than $2 million for our four MLB partner foundations, equipping underserved young people all around the state with custom-made leather baseball mitts and ensuring they have access to enriching, high-quality youth baseball and softball leagues.

As always, the California Masonic Foundation is proud to partner with the charitable foundations of the Los Angeles AngelsLos Angeles DodgersSan Diego Padres, and San Francisco Giants. By donating to Masons4Mitts, you ensure that underserved young people are provided with a custom-made leather baseball mitt and able to play the game and learn important life lessons. With a focus on expanding the range of skills and services it brings to young people to include health, nutrition, wellness, and social justice, Masons4Mitts is growing to incorporate so much more than the game.

Support young people in your community today by donating a mitt today—and help your team win statewide bragging rights!


Every baseball season, the Masons of California partner with Angels Baseball, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres, and San Francisco Giants Major League Baseball (MLB) teams to bring the fun and team-building skills of baseball to more California kids. MLB foundations in each region are committed to serving the community and providing a positive outlet for children. Throughout the season, teams of Masonic lodges in each region face off in friendly competition to help the most kids they can, by purchasing baseball mitts for children who participate in programs through the MLB foundations. At the end of the campaign in the fall, our grand master will present a check to each of our four MLB partners.


Each year, regional teams of Masonic lodges compete to purchase high-quality leather baseball mitts for children who participate in charitable baseball programs. We are now in our 16th year. We have raised over $2,000,000 statewide, which would be over 100,000 mitts.

The charitable baseball programs offered through the Major League Baseball teams provide sports instruction, a safe place to play, help developing teamwork skills, and guidance on health, nutrition, study skills, and more.

Our Major League Baseball foundation partners include:

  • Angels Baseball Foundation
  • Dodgers Foundation
  • Giants Community Fund
  • Padres Foundation for Children
