Rawa Katowice in Poland received its second equipment grant from PIFBS in 2020.
The league had previously received a grant in 2015, but players were getting older and taller and outgrowing their old equipment. They created a 15U team in 2020, and needed the proper size gear.
The grant provided Rawa Katowice with new gloves, helmets, and catchers gear, helping the teams take part in tournaments and increase safety during practice. Patryk, 14, had always been in the shadow of older kids, but through the 2020 season he became more self-confident. His power at the plate increased, and he began running more aggressively and stealing bases. During the championship he even pitched his team to victory!
