Pitch In For Baseball

Every glove matters

By Jim Dailey

The other day I was going through old gloves from the 1950’s and 1960’s that were donated to Pitch In For Baseball and began thinking about the history of these gloves.  I realized that people aren’t just donating a glove; they are donating memories.

Former baseball players enjoy talking about their playing days and reminisce about their playing in high school and making the game saving catch to win the championship for their team. Some people may have emotional feelings towards their old gloves.  Those gloves may invoke memories of growing up having a catch in the backyard with their dad.

Pitch In for Baseball is not just helping the children play baseball; it’s about giving children the tools needed to make memories last a lifetime.
