In 2020, Union Township Athletic Association’s baseball and softball programs received an equipment grant funded by the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Tull Family Foundation.
As a small community in the New Castle area, the league hoped the donation would ensure that kids participating would have updated equipment to make their experience safe and enjoyable. Union Township Athletic Association works hard to fundraise in order to keep their facilities and equipment maintained properly, but can not afford to purchase new equipment each year.
With the grant, Union Township Athletic Association was able to give teams new equipment to use, which was particularly helpful during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ethan was very quiet in school, but his love for baseball brings him out his shell and helps him interact and bond with others through the game.
