My husband is a local Central MA Umpire, he and another umpire from the Northbridge area have volunteered to collect un-wanted, gently used baseball equipment.
They have signed up with Pitch in for Baseball (www.pitchinforbaseball.org)
This organization collects gently used baseball equipment and provides it to baseball organizations all over the world in need. The recent team from Uganda in the LL World Series has been receiving gear from this organization over the last 5 years.
Here is what they collect:
• Fielding Gloves
• Youth bats
• Catcher's mitts and protective gear
• Batting helmets
• Baseballs and softballs
• Soft cover balls for Tee Ball
• Rubber baseball cleats
• Youth uniform pants (sets of 12, or more, if not white or gray)
• Youth uniform shirts and hats (sets of 12, or more)
• Umpire protective gear
• Team equipment bags
• Sets of bases
• Batting tees
• Pitching machines
I'm looking to get the word out to the Milford community to see if anyone would want to help us give back and donate. Spring is right around the corner and people are getting ready for baseball signups, and seeing what they need for the upcoming season, if you have un-wanted items that you would want to donate please contact us and we will arrange to come pick it up.
