The 9th Annual RBI Austin Benefit, Now at Bat was held on Thursday, January 24th, 2019 at the JW Marriott in downtown Austin. This annual event was one to remember as Austin’s MLB community and other special guests came together with 900 attendees to raise $663,000 in support of RBI Austin’s 1,312 kids!

Longhorn Network Host Alex Loeb served as emcee for the evening and led the featured panel discussion with Two-Time Olympian Cat Osterman and Longhorn Legend Huston Street, both who serve as members of the RBI Austin Board of Directors.

In addition to dinner, drinks, a cocktail reception, a live auction, and appearances by other special guests, the audience enjoyed a surprise acoustic performance by Texas Country Music stars Josh Abbott and Wade Bowen.
