My players come from unique backgrounds. Living in an urban city is not easy for young athletes these days. Some players work to provide financially for their house holds and families. With that said, it is difficult to purchase sport specific equipment.
My baseball program means the world to us.
We try hard to educate both on and off the field. We are in need of equipment and apparel for our Varsity and Junior Varsity teams.
With budget cuts it is hard for our inner city youth programs to provide our athletes’ equipment. My coaching staff and I try to work with what we have but we believe our kids deserve more. Life is so hard for these kids and we are just trying to be a positive role model in their lives
As the old saying goes, “You got to look good to play good." So we are looking to get baseball bags. We would truly appreciate any donation we receive for our program. It’s the little things that can change a child's life.
Athletes will have bags to carry baseball equipment to school and games as we have no looker room to store our baseball equipment at the high school. These baseball bags will hold cleats, gloves, bats, uniforms and other things. Our players will no longer have to use multiple bags for school and sports. It will help them to remember all of their equipment for practice and game day events. Our program never had the opportunity to have matching bags. This is a positive step in the right direction for our student athletes. Thank to anyone that will donate to a great cause.
