The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Tull Family Foundation teamed up with PIFBS to help over 1,300 kids get on the field in the Pittsburgh area this year! Though we have worked with the Tull Family Foundation previously, it was our first time teaming up with the Pirates. The donation included gloves, catcher’s gear, helmets, bats, baseballs/softballs, equipment bags, cleats, and batting tees that was valued at more than $75,000. The donation supported both baseball and softball teams from Little Leagues, schools, and other organizations in the Pittsburgh area. The Pirates generously invited the teams to PNC Park for a distribution event to pick up their gear in early April. Thank you to the Pittsburgh Pirates organization and the Tull Family Foundation for helping kids get on the field in western Pennsylvania!
