|2015 Summer Playoffs
It has been a great summer this year. From expanding the number of kids served to the types of activities offered outside of baseball/softball games, we have truly grown yet again as an organization. As the summer winds down, playoff games will start this week for the Patriots and the following week for the Reds teams.
GOOD LUCK TEAMZ!
Next game coming up: Wednesday, July 29th - Patriots @ Gately Park at 5:30pm
Kids Fest at Wampum Lake
Last week, our youth had the chance to attend Kids Fest. Hosted by the Forest Preserve of Cook County, Kids Fest is a large outdoor expo where families can go camping, boating, and fishing. There's also vendor booths, learning stations, and other activities such as canoeing and archery.
Congratulations to one of our long-time sponsors Pitch In For Baseball! Recently, the New York Yankees announced that they would donate $150,000 to this amazing organization.
Pitch In For Baseball (PIFB) is a registered 501(c)(3) not for profit organization that provides new and gently used baseball and softball equipment to boys and girls in the United States and around the world who want to play ball but lack the equipment to do so. Over the past 9 years, Pitch In For Baseball has donated more than $4 million worth of equipment to 500,000 under-resourced kids in nearly every state in the U.S. and 80 different countries internationally.
