Baseball Gear for kids in need

We are sponsoring a baseball league of 200 boys and girls, aged 5-16, in a poverty stricken neighborhood in East St Louis, IL, at the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center. Many of them play ball in their school shoes and have to share gloves on the field. They live around drugs and violence in their community every day. Baseball gives them a chance to be part of a team and build camaraderie with those around them.

The equipment will be handed out by local military servicemembers. This will be for the 2018 spring baseball season. Please consider donating a couple bucks and put a smile on their faces. All proceeds support these kids. Nothing goes as profit to anyone. Please share the campaign as you feel appropriate.
