This project is solely dedicated to a group of young boys that I have been coaching, and have been playing baseball together for almost 4-5 years for some of them, some less, yet they remain a very tight knit unit as an entire group. After the other coaches and I have spent countless hours and funds on these awesome kids, we need to kick it to the next level! No more looking like the Bad News Bears with disheveled gear and uniforms, practicing with hand-me-down broken equipment, using bungee cords to hold catchers gear together, and borrowing equipment from the opposing teams (ya, I know it sounds familiar, we look like the Mighty Ducks before Emilio Estevez got them sponsored). I believe that if you look good, you feel good; and if you feel good, you will play with a better sense of pride which in turn results in better play overall. I've seen it with these young boys season after season. When the other team has real jersey's, matching baseball bags hanging on the fence properly, and simply looks more organized...our boys assume that the other team is better. Now I know that's not the case, but try telling that to 9 & 10yr old boys. All funds will go to the kids, and I have created a Facebook page that will allow all of our "sponsors" to track not only the ways that the funds are spent, but the teams progress as well. None of the funds will be paid to any of the coaches or any other individual for personal gain. All of the money raised will go to these kids that work so hard season after season. Some items at the top of their wishlist are: Real button-down uniforms with their names on the back, batting and catching gear, training aids, batting cage time, and official (pitching/batting/fundamental) lessons offered by local baseball training organizations. We thank you for your support and look forward to the start of the 2014 spring season.
