Scotty McCreery is combining a few of his biggest passions — music, sports and youth — this fall. The Season 10 ‘American Idol’ winner has launched a six-city Major League Baseball tour, where he will donate a grand total of $50,000 to local youth baseball programs.

“I learned some of my greatest lessons playing sports and being a team member,” he says (quote via Taste of Country). “Sports teach you so many life lessons about self-discipline, responsibility, teamwork, setting goals, and being fit. It’s awesome that Major League Baseball provides opportunities for kids who might not have a chance to play baseball and softball elsewhere. I’m proud to provide assistance to this program.”

At each game, the former high school pitcher will invite local radio winners to be his personal guests, provide CDs for contest winners and serve as the game’s guest broadcaster.

McCreery kicked off his baseball tour on Aug. 29 at the Tampa Blue Rays stadium, where he threw out the first pitch, sang ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ and donated $5000 to a Tampa youth baseball organization.

The 19-year-old is combining his baseball tour, which will head to Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta later this month, with his own Weekend Road Trip tour. See all of his upcoming shows here.
