Arlington: The American Dream City is partnering with Major League Baseball and the United States Conference of Mayors for the Play Ball initiative.

The program focuses on the sport and encourages sustained participation for years to come. Play Ball also serves as a platform to connect with those who are currently involved in the game, while also providing alternative ways in for those looking to get involved, with a specific focus on youth participation.

Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams has committed to participating in Play Ball events focused on both baseball and softball. The program also includes at-home exercises to instill a love for the game while families social-distance to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The program will also receive support from the Texas Rangers when the 2020 Major League Baseball season begins.
