Elijah is new to the Lost Boyz this season. He is the only Caucasian child in predominantly African American neighborhood. At first he was shy and didn’t have many friends. Through baseball he was able to break out of his shell. Being able to put on the jersey that was donated by Pitch In For Baseball has allowed him to feel a part of a team. Like many of the players in the Lost Boyz program, the cost of baseball equipment is a burden on the families. The equipment donation allowed Elijah the opportunity to play and make friends with his new teammates.
