About Us

What We Do



Strike Out is an organization committed to helping those in need by creating baseball events with our youth to raise money and awareness for worthy causes. 

Each event hosted by Strike Out will include MLB current and former players, scouts, and more from various teams. 

About The Founder


 Strike Out was formed and will be led by Nikki Allen, who will serve as CEO. 

Nikki has faced her own challenges and found that there was no significant source of help, therefore, she had to navigate through very troubled waters to pull through. At her lowest point, she found herself raising two children alone, one who had health issues, with no help and no income thanks to the recession. Unfortunately, this landed her and her kids in a homeless shelter. Knowing that her situation was temporary, she met people who were stuck in a cycle and this tugged deeply at her heartstrings. As someone who always had compassion for the less fortunate, being in the trenches and becoming the less fortunate made her more certain than ever that she had to put herself in a position to help people. Nikki figured the best way would be to raise money and awareness through something she was also passionate about... BASEBALL!!! and Strike Out was born.

"Nikki and her team provided a great venue for the Strike Out toy drive.  Families were able to meet Santa and have a great day of fun, and for a great cause.  To top it off, a great baseball game concluded the day.  Don't miss next year's event!"
