Now at Bat 2021: 10 Years + Going Strong!

Mark your calendars for Thursday, January 28, 2021 and celebrate TEN years with us at RBI Austin’s annual benefit, Now at Bat!

Join us as we celebrate both what God has done these past 10 years and what He will do in the lives of our 1,491 RBI Austin kids in the years to come.

While our world is in a much different place than it was last January, we are as excited as ever to host you at our annual benefit this coming January. Should a virtual or hybrid event be necessary, we will adjust corresponding benefits to align with sponsor expectations.

2020 Now at Bat Benefit: A True Home Run

The 10th Annual RBI Austin Benefit, Now at Bat was held on Thursday, January 30th, 2020 at the JW Marriott in downtown Austin. This annual event was one to remember as Austin’s MLB community, UT’s Chris Del Conte, and other special guests came together with 770 attendees to raise $760,000 in support of RBI Austin’s 1,491 kids!

Longhorn Network Host Alex Loeb served as emcee for the evening and University of Texas Vice President and Director of Athletics Chris Del Conte served as the event’s featured speaker.
