Pitch In for Baseball
Since 2005, Little League® International has teamed up with Pitch In For Baseball® to help provide assistance to communities who don't have access to equipment and uniforms for their baseball and softball programs.
Simply stated, Pitch In For Baseball (www.pitchinforbaseball.org) is the central non-profit organization that Little League partners with for the collection of new and gently-used youth baseball and softball equipment. Pitch In For Baseball (PIFB) then sorts and redistributes equipment and uniform donations to underserved kids and leagues throughout the world, including chartered Little League programs.
Since its inception in 2005, PIFB has distributed more than $3 million worth of equipment to over 200,000 children in more than 75 countries worldwide and nearly every state domestically. All local Little Leagues are asked and encouraged to donate gently-used equipment or uniforms to PIFB. For every donation made, another opportunity is created for a child to play baseball or softball. If your league wants to make a donation, or wishes to be considered for assistance from PIFB, contact Executive Director, David Rhode. David can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pitch In For Baseball is a god send for Little Leagues in Ukraine. It is not possible to buy any quality baseball equipment here and Pitch In For Baseball has made it possible for hundreds of boys and girls to play baseball and softball. The children you have helped thank you from the bottom of their hearts.
