KinderVision/The Greatest Save is a recognized charity of Major League Baseball and has partnered with MLB for more than 20 years to protect children and teens from exploitation and abduction. Following are two of the more than twenty KV/TGS Safety Messages recorded by MLB players to help educate children and teens.
MLB features TGS at MLB All Star FanFest annually, where more than five thousand children and their parents participate in TGS safety activities. In addition, many of the Clubs host TGS safety events at the ballpark including the Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Angels, San Diego Padres, Arizona Diamondbacks, Miami Marlins, Cincinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs, , Washington Nationals, New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, Kansas City Royals, Atlanta Braves, Texas Rangers, Minnesota Twins, Oakland A’s, Tampa Bay Rays, Philadelphia Phillies, the Houston Astros, the Boston Red Sox, and more.
MLB Hall of Fame member Rollie Fingers is the National Spokesperson for The Greatest Save and coined the phrase, “When it comes to kids, The Greatest Save is the one we never have to make,” emphasizing the prevention aspect of this work. Other HOFers supporting TGS include Goose Gossage, Ferguson Jenkins, Gaylord Perry, Phil Niekro, Earl Weaver, Brooks Robinson, Steve Carlton, Bruce Sutter, Dennis Eckersley and a host of non Hall of Fame players. The MLB players participate by attending annual TGS “Stars for Kids” benefits around the country, providing autographed items for fundraising, and recording TGS personal safety tips for children and teens.
TGS also partners with Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association to provide baseball/safety clinics around the country, often in connection with TGS “Stars for Kids” Celebrity Experience Benefits and TGS Hall of Fame Legends Games.
Many of the MLB franchises annually record “TGS Player” PSA’s, 30 second safety tips, for kids and teens. Please check out the PSAs listed below and share them with family and friends to help make the world a safer place for kids of all ages.
