My name is Roger Keeling and I was fortunate to be born in the United States of America where I had the incredible opportunity to spend my youth playing the game of baseball. I established the NYBSA for the children of Nicaragua as a way to partner with others in giving back to the great games of baseball and softball a small portion of what I took from these games as a child and young adult.
Thanks to the support of friends of that program and this website, that dream has grown into an even larger opportunity. The International Baseball Association has incorporated the NYBSA into the International Baseball Academy of Central America (IBACA) in Nicaragua. IBACA is focused specifically on Central America's youth baseball talent, helping players pursue their dreams of playing in the Major Leagues.
IBACA also offers education, vocational training, and employment opportunities, providing critical social and development services to facilitate the growth of these young men into responsible community role models. With this expanded program, IBACA intends to help raise the standard of living of the surrounding community as well as positively impact the lives of the participating players.
Baseball fans and NYBSA supporters can discuss the IBACA with me personally or make a donation by contacting 770-881-7725 or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about the exciting plans and progress of the IBACA at www.ibaca.org. Thank you for your continued interest and support.
