Though invented in the U.S., baseball is embraced by many countries. Young players in the Pacific Rim and Latin America play the game with as much joy and success as kids in North America. Everywhere baseball is played, it becomes an important part of the culture and teaches kids many important lessons, like teamwork and sportsmanship. It also gives kids the chance to be active, get fit and have fun.
That’s Pitch In For Baseball’s Mission: to help kids and make friends all over the world by sharing the great game of baseball. We collect and give baseball equipment and other assistance to young people in underserved communities around the globe.
We were inspired to start Pitch In For Baseball because of the success of one of our Board Members, Bill Piszek, when he shared his love of baseball with needy kids in Poland.
Pitch In For Baseball has four goals:
? To support the growth of baseball in the U.S. and internationally.
? To give kids equipment so they can get out, have fun and stay healthy.
? To teach kids important lessons through baseball, like teamwork and sportsmanship.
? To make friends across the world through America’s pastime.
