“Saje Mendiola is a second-year player. From day one she wanted to be a catcher and go to the Little League World Series. She saved her own money to buy her very own catcher set but, because of the donation, Saje was able to get a full catcher set! When we got the large shipment of supplies, I told her I had something special for her. We both cried in the moment. It’s so special to be able to give kids their very own gear (this doesn’t happen much because we are a low-income and small league with few resources). This young lady sang our national anthem, dived for every ball she could, and had determination and persistence like no kid I ever met before. She brings her gear every day and asks to practice with any team playing. Every. Single. Day. This girl is sure something!”
