My Students

My baseball and softball players need to be supported by individuals who love helping children. My students need proper equipment to reach their full potential on the sports fields and that will lead them to self-confidence in the classrooms.

The students represent a broad spectrum of cultural and economic backgrounds.

Due to varied circumstances, they often lack equipment.

With a little help, my students can achieve greatness they just need a little help to get there! Please consider paying it forward and help my students reach their full potential!

My Project

The most important aspect of on-field batting is that the batter is given a high percentage of ‘good pitches' to hit. The L-screens will keep our baseball players, softball players, and coaches safe on and off the field because they allow players to throw without worrying about being hit. L-screens will be used in batting practice or during training for both indoor and outdoor baseball and softball practices. The baseballs will allow us to get multiple ground balls and fly balls during practices. This allows practices with multiple activities to run smoothly. A greater supply of balls also means players will spend less chasing stray balls during practice and can be done during breaks, after practice, or by coaches. The bases will be used for small group instruction in the outfield during practice. Our season starts April 11th and we need all the help we can get!!
