Put Me In, Coach. I'm Ready To Play...Today.

My students need 15 baseball gloves and 2 youth baseball bats.

I am a 5th grade teacher at a small Title One school in Los Angeles, CA. 86% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch. 41% of our students are designated as English Learners.

So, it is natural that I would like my 5th grade students to play...BASEBALL! Yes, baseball! Our humble school has no grass field and lacks a sufficient amount of playground equipment. On top of this, our plastic jump ropes are in tatters; our handballs, volleyballs, and basketballs are deflated, and the playground supervisors seem to have an aversion towards footballs...even the NERF ones! Ultimately, our kids either play mind-numbing yard games or walk around aimlessly between bells.

I would like to change all of this. I am asking...no...PLEADING for some good old fashioned baseball equipment; 15 mitts and 2 bats to be specific. In my opinion, baseball is the greatest American game. It is also the most democratic game I know, because everyone gets to bat a certain number of times. Furthermore, the game itself is heavily dependent on teamwork; because in order for your team to be successful, the team must learn inter-dependence.

If this project gets funded, I pledge to go out and play with my class as often as humanly possible. I will teach them every aspect of the game: from defensive positions, hitting strategies, as well as a little bit of the history of the game itself. Spring training is in just a few weeks. Please help us out with a generous donation. Thank you so much!
