Chris from Lost Boyz

For the past four years, Pitch In For Baseball has been supporting the Lost Boyz organization with equipment grants. Lost Boyz is a non-profit, grass-roots organization engaged in community development in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood.  Most kids show up without gear because parents cannot afford equipment.  Their goal this year is to double the participation. The equipment donation from Pitch In For Baseball is helping in accomplishing this goal.  One example of a child in the league impacted by the donation is Chris.

Chris is in his second season.  He has natural talent and loves to play baseball, but he has five siblings and his mother does not have the income to pay for everything that is necessary to participate in a baseball league.  The donation of equipment has given him the opportunity to play and he’s been able to excel at baseball because of it.
