HARLEYSVILLE, Pa. (CBS) – “Pitch in for Baseball” is a non-profit organization based in Harleysville which provides new or gently-used baseball equipment to kids and organizations around the world.
During February the group focused on youth leagues closer to home.
“We are right in the middle of the biggest project in our eight-year history. We are helping ten youth leagues, throughout New Jersey and New York, that basically lost everything in Hurricane Sandy. During the month of February, we’ll be donating over $150,000 worth of equipment, to make sure these kids and these communities get back on their feet,” said David Rhode, executive director of Pitch in for Baseball.
Rhode says they have been delivering equipment to the area all month long.
Pitch in for Baseball has delivered equipment to 75 countries around the world.
