Growing up in the DMV area Jibri Johnson cultivated a love for baseball. He attended Morgan State as a philosophy major and trained. Attending a college that didn't have a baseball team, for a man with Major League dreams, was not the most logical direction to take. Finally at the age of 24 he was given a shot to play Independent League ball in Houston. The experience would forever change him. He realized playing baseball didn't give him joy, but being around the game and helping the youth did. He eventually became a mentor and coach for the Washington Nationals Youth Academy and later varsity coach at Friendship Collegiate Public Charter School. Soon he decided to birth an idea that had been incubating in his heart for some time. With the help of 2 fellow coaches from the Youth Academy they created Changing the Game Foundation Inc. Which is a baseball training and mentoring non-profit. The goal is to provide experiences, opportunities and hope to the youth in underserved areas in our community. Baseball is the common them between us but our end is to cultivate successful young men and women in out community.
