We Want to Hit Dingers!

Help me give my students the ability to play baseball. We are just not starting a baseball program at our school. We need everything to bring this dream to reality, we need approved bats to play!

My Students

My students come from rural Eastern Kentucky, most of which are from a low social economic status. We have a high majority of our students with free or reduced lunch. We are a small school that tries to give not only a great classroom education but also opportunities to play sports outside the classroom.

We want all our students to know that they are special and they are loved by all.

Our local area suffers as do many from the drug crisis, by having after school sports for our students, we offer a way to keep kids out of trouble. Our teachers and coaches work around the clock to better our students.

My Project

Our school is just not starting a baseball program at our school. With our school not having any baseball gear we are starting from zero. Having brand new bats for our students to use will make a huge difference. The students will feel like they have equal gear to the other teams we will play.

These bats will be used in every game and every practice to help us improve!

Our students will be grateful to know that not only their teachers love them, people they may never meet love and care for them as well! Thank you for your consideration.
