CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Former MLB, Charlotte O's and Knights player Jeff Schaefer started the "U Deserve A Chance Foundation" in hopes of giving all kids the opportunity to play baseball, regardless of financial restrictions.

The annual Home Plate Gala is at BB&T Ballpark on November 5 from 6 to 11 p.m.

The gala helps raise money for the organization, and this year they're honoring former player Chris Singleton. For more on the foundation and how you can make a reservation to this years gala visit udacf.org.
