Sandlot Sloths, a community based on non-fungible tokens (NFTs) centered around baseball, has teamed up with Major League Baseball’s Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) Kids Program to create a collection of 5,944 hand-drawn sloths NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain.
According to their press release, the NFT tokens are membership tickets to the Sandlot Sloths association, where baseball fans can participate in real-life events and purchase baseball-related merchandise. The association also supports RBI, their affiliated charity partner, in assisting underserved communities.
Interested buyers are encouraged to register to qualify for the allowlist. The pre-sale will be held on March 30, 2023, and it will enable allowlist members to mint up to 9 tokens at a discounted price of 0.03 ETH. Alternatively, the public mint will commence on March 31, and tokens will be available for purchase at 0.042 ETH.
20% of the initial Sandlot Sloths NFTs sale revenue will be donated to RBI to support children’s access to connected programs so they can play, and 2% of all future sales of the Sandlot Sloths collection will be donated to RBI each month.
Sandlot Sloths NFT token holders will have access to more than just membership in a community of baseball enthusiasts. They will also have the opportunity to enjoy a range of perks, such as access to in-person meetups and MLB game tickets, complimentary merchandise, an ETH (cryptocurrency) airdrop, exclusive giveaways, automatic eligibility for future drops, and a vote in deciding how charity funds are distributed.
Jonathan Levey, the founder of Sandlot Sloths, expressed his vision for the community: “Our goal is to build a community of baseball fans that share a passion for America’s pastime while supporting young people from underserved communities with the opportunity to play. Sandlot Sloths is how we aim to accomplish this.”
David James, Vice President of Baseball & Softball Development at MLB, stated:
“On behalf of Major League Baseball, I want to thank Jonathan Levey and his Sandlot Sloths NFT for their support of the RBI program.”
According to James, the RBI program will continue to offer opportunities to underprivileged kids and communities, and their generosity will undoubtedly support their efforts to strengthen the program worldwide.
