Larry Lobue - President
The Skeeters Baseball Foundation promotes youth education and healthy activities for culturally, racially and economically diverse populations in the Fort Bend county and surrounding areas.
Our goal is to reward the kindness and support of the community by making a difference in the lives of children. By providing a number of opportunities for vulnerable populations, we are taking away the sting of isolation and welcoming them wholeheartedly to join their community.
The Skeeters Baseball Foundation will provide in a number of ways including support of other educational programs through a grant program, merchandise donations to be utilized by organizations such as auction items, the underwriting of game tickets and game day transportation.
Specifically, the Skeeters Baseball Foundation has donated funds to the Alief YMCA, Arc of Ft. Bend, The Boys and Girls Club of Richmond-Rosenberg, The Dream League Challenger Division of the First Colony Little League and worked with the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation on the construction of the City’s first universally accessible playground Project at First Colony Park.
Since it's inception the Foundation has raised over $100,000 with their Kickball Classic and Golf Fore Skeeters events.
With the 2018 season, the Skeeters Foundation will implement a 50/50 raffle in which individuals can purchase raffle ticket for the chance to win 50% of that games proceeds. The remaining 50% goes to the foundation to support our mission. It is our belief that all children should have access to healthy, safe, and engaging activities.

SUGAR LAND, TX- On September 1, the Sugar Land Skeeters returned to Constellation Field for a four game homestand against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. As the smell of popcorn from the concession stand filled the concourse, it wasn’t enough to overtake the sense of gratitude from fans that attended the ballpark.
The Skeeters’ 2-1 victory over the Blue Crabs on Friday marked the first professional sporting event for the city in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Despite the heavy hearts that filled the stadium, Skeeters President Jay Miller said it was important for the Skeeters to play this homestand to bring some relief to the city.
“On behalf of the Skeeters organization, I just want to thank everyone for their support over the past week,” Miller said. “This four game homestand meant a lot to the community as it gave them a sense of hope and normality to the city. For me, baseball was a great alternative for fans to come out and have some fun following the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.”
Numerous fans attended the weekend games against the Blue Crabs and donated $10,000 to Fort Bend County disaster relief to help those who have been affected by Harvey. The Skeeters Foundation, spearheaded by owners Bob and Marcie Zlotnik, matched the fan donations for a total of $20,000 over the four game series.
Bob and Marcie also reached out to Sugar Land Mayor Joe Zimmerman and offered Constellation Field as an emergency shelter and staging area to help local residents. Approximately 300 residents stayed at the ballpark as temporary shelter. The Skeeters organization will continue to offer first responders and evacuees free tickets to the remaining home games (Sept. 12-17) and collect school supplies for area schools.
“With so many displaced game day staff, Legends wasn’t sure they could staff the concession stands,” said Marcie. “I am so fortunate to have amazing friends and was able to get 20-25 volunteers for each of the four games to work the concession stands as runners and cashiers enabling the stadium to offer the fans their usual fan fare.”
“The money we raised for the relief efforts showed the strength of the community,” Skeeters Assistant General Manager Kyle Dawson said. “It proves that in troubling times people care about the well-being of others, and it was good to see our fans take a step forward in order to help those who are in need.”
The return to Constellation Field not only meant a lot to fans but to the players as well. As Harvey was approaching the Texas coast, Skeeters player coach Travis Scott said it was tough trying to focus on baseball while their families suffered through the worst rainfall in history back at home.
“While on the road, it was heartbreaking for us to watch the turmoil and destruction going on in Houston,” Scott said. “At that time, playing in a baseball game was one of the hardest things to do because we were all worried about our families back home. Harvey was just another reminder of what’s more important in life.”
After being displaced in New Britain due to the intense flooding and other damages, Skeeters infielder and Houston native Bryan Pounds said he was overwhelmed with joy in their first game back in Sugar Land.
“It was truly a blessing for us to come back and play here this weekend, and I was overwhelmed with joy,” Pounds said. “This homestand meant a lot for us as we were blessed to give some relief to our city after everything they have been through over the past week.”
Despite the aching hearts, the Skeeters’ return was a small step towards normalizing people’s lives and giving them a reason to smile.
Sugar Land Skeeters Foundation promotes education and healthy activities for youth in the Fort Bend and Greater Houston area, and in 2015, The Foundation was thrilled to announce partnerships with the Alief YMCA, the Sugar Land Dream League Team and the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation, as well as the success of the Second-Annual Skeeters Foundation Kickball Classic.
As part of the Foundation’s Deacon’s Dugout initiative, the Skeeters began a three-year campaign with the Alief YMCA to support new tee-ball and coach pitch leagues targeted to economically disadvantaged kids for the surrounding neighborhoods. In 2018, the campaign’s third year, the Foundation donated a total of $5,000 to cover the players’ registration fees and to provide uniforms, a ball and a glove to all participants.
The Foundation recently donated $5,000 to The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston in an effort to support their BatterUp Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston/Richmond/Rosenberg. This program provides summer leagues, instructional sessions and clinics for the children to attend in order to not only teach the fundamentals of the sport, but to improve the overall coordination and health of the youth. The Boys & Girls Club can be seen wearing jerseys with the Skeeters logo and parading the Championship Flag during their season.
Along with Alief YMCA and the Boys & Girls Club, the Skeeters Foundation also donated $5,000 to Parks Youth Ranch to purchase outdoor workout station equipment for their resident youths. Each piece of equipment is specifically tailored to utilize and strengthen different muscles throughout their body. The Foundation also donated $5,000 to The Arc of Fort Bend County to send their children to the Special Olympics. The Arc helps these athletes to enhance their physical abilities and achieve milestones that would not otherwise be possible.
This year the Foundation is excited to announce the 50/50 Raffle, a new addition to each Skeeters home game. Each game, fans will have the opportunity to “get rich or donate trying” by purchasing raffle tickets with half of the overall jackpot going to the winner and the other half benefiting the Skeeters Baseball Foundation to help make a huge difference in the community. So far, the 50/50 Raffle has raised over $8,000 to benefit the Foundation and rewarded $10,000 to the winners.
The fourth annual Skeeters Baseball Foundation Kickball Classic, held on September 23, 2017 at Constellation Field, was a huge success raising over $15,000. Local area businesses joined together for a day of fun-filled kickball competition in support of the Skeeters Foundation.
Over 200 players participated in the tournament, with Fluor Cares taking home the Carl Favre Memorial Trophy for first place and the Sugar Land Skeeters team taking second place. “You’re Kicking Me Smalls” of Memorial Hermann Surgical Hospital First Colony was awarded best team name and Pisula Development’s team, “Royal Pitches,” won the best costume award. Taking second place for their costumes was Radley Staffing’s “Kickaholics” and “New Kicks on the Block” of Memorial Hermann Sugar Land also took second for their team name.
This year, the fifth annual Skeeters Kickball Classic will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at Constellation Field. For more information and to sign up, call 281-207-9112 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of the Foundation’s Deacon’s Dugout initiative, the Skeeters Foundation has aligned with the Alief YMCA on a three-year plan for their youth baseball program. The improvements will enable the YMCA to have new tee ball and coach pitch leagues targeted to economically disadvantaged kids in the surrounding neighborhoods. In 2017, the Foundation donated $10,000 to fully equip all players with uniforms, balls and gloves in addition to paying their league dues.
The Skeeters Foundation donated $5,000 to The Arc for the purchase of new warm-up jackets for their Special Olympics athletes and head coaches. The jackets will provide a neat, uniform appearance for the delegates as they compete in local, area and state Special Olympics competitions.
The Skeeters Foundation donated $5,000 to the Fort Bend Boys & Girls Club to support their BatterUp Baseball Program at the Richmond-Rosenberg Club. This program provides children with summer leagues, instructional sessions and clinics intended to not only teach the fundamentals of the sport, but to improve their overall coordination and health.
The First Colony Dream League was the recipient of a $5,000 donation from the Skeeters Foundation to ensure that all children can enjoy the game of baseball by covering the costs of the league’s uniforms and equipment.
On October 1, 2016, The Skeeters Baseball Foundation hosted its third annual Kickball Classic. This event was a huge success with local area businesses joining together for a day of fun and raising almost $50,000, doubling the 2015 amount.
Twenty-eight teams and over 500 players participated in the tournament, with the Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey/Sterling McCall Lexus “Bad News Barristers” taking home the Carl Favre Memorial Trophy for first place. “Don’t Stop BaLLieving” of The Snowdrop Foundation was awarded best team name and Pisula Development’s team, “2 Legit 2 Kick,” won the best costume award.
As part of the Foundation’s Deacon’s Dugout initiative, the Skeeters have aligned with the Alief YMCA on a three year field improvement plan for their youth baseball fields. The improvements will now enable the YMCA to have new tee ball and coach pitch leagues targeted to economically disadvantaged kids for the surrounding neighborhoods. All players will be provided with uniforms, ball and glove compliments of the Foundation.
The Foundation recently donated funds to The Dream League, the Challenger Division of the First Colony Little League in Sugar Land, Texas. The team was selected as one of two teams to play in the 2015 Little League World Series and has grown to approximately 100 physically and/or intellectually challenged players.
In conjunction with the Sugar Land Legacy Foundation, a non-profit community group that supports activities and capital projects that benefit residents of Sugar Land, the Skeeters Foundation has donated funds toward the construction of the City’s first universally accessible playground Project at First Colony Park. The new playground will replace the current playground at First Colony Park and provide a place where children can play in a safe, welcoming environment that is accessible for people with disabilities.
Sixteen teams participated in the tournament and The City of Sugar Land Royals’ took home the overall championship by going undefeated on the afternoon while the Mighty Mareks of the Marriott Sugar Land in Town Square were awarded team costume winners.
