Pitch In for Baseball Aims to Provide Kids with Used Baseball Gear

Monday, September 15th, 2008

“Let your equipment play extra innings,” is the mantra of Pitch In for Baseball, a non-profit organization founded to help provide equipment to kids in need all over the world.

New baseball gear comes out every year, and kids outgrow equipment extremely fast. Instead of throwing away used gear, or letting it sit unused in the garage or basement, Pitch In for Baseball allows you to donate it to the less-fortunate. They also accept monetary donations, which generally help offset shipping and administrative costs.

I think this project is a great idea and I would love to help. I think that people need to do as much as possible to help kids. Giving underprivileged kids a chance to play ball could help keep them off the streets and out of trouble.

Check out the Pitch In for Baseball website and send them your used gear:

Taking Care of Your Aluminum Bat

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

Aluminum baseball bats cost up to $400 these days, so taking care of them properly is more important than ever. Here are some tips for taking care of your baseball bat.

  • Limit the bat to your individual use only.
  • Rotate the bat 1/4 turn each swing.
  • Do not use in temperatures below 60° (16° C).
  • Do not store the bat in extreme hot or cold temperatures, such as in a car trunk or garage.
  • Do not clean metal spikes or cleats with your bat. Use with leather-covered balls only, not plastic or rubber cage balls.
  • Do not hit waterlogged balls.
  • If using a softball bat, do not use balls that exceed 400lbs. compression.
  • Routinely check your plastic end cap and replace it if it cracks or becomes loose.

These simple tips can save your bat wear and tear, and keep you from having to buy a new one every year.
