Gearing Up In Galveston

Last September, the community of Galveston, Texas was devastated by Hurricane Ike.  Among other things, Galveston was a hotbed for Little League baseball, with 7 leagues based in the area.

Pitch In For Baseball contacted the local Galveston Little League District Administrator and asked how we could help.  What ensued over the coming months was an ongoing dialogue to clearly identify what their needs were and how much of it PIFB could fulfill. 

In February, PIFB packaged up and delivered 5 pallets of equipment weighing more than 1 ton.  The equipment arrived in Galveston just prior to the start of their first scheduled practices.  Opening Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 28.  We plan to be in attendance!
