“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.
