    Like many of our equipment donors throughout the year, Will was inspired by his love of the game to run an equipment collection in his Connecticut hometown benefiting Pitch In For Baseball & Softball. Will worked hard to advertise his equipment drive early and often in addition to having various drop off dates and locations throughout the community. Spreading the word paid off for Will as he amassed nearly 1,000 pieces of baseball and softball gear to donate to PIFBS! Will and his family packed up the gear, rented a truck, and made the drive to our Pennsylvania warehouse to drop it all off! Will is planning to host another drive next year and also hopes to raise funds to support a project in Puerto Rico!

In total, the equipment collection brought in nearly 200 pieces of gear to help PIFBS get much needed softball equipment for our inventory to help even more girls have the opportunity to play ball.

  • Evan Raises $15,000 to Support Local New York League

    Part of the Jewish tradition of the Bar and Bat mitzvah is the completion of a mitzvah project, when a young person gives back to his/her community in a meaningful way. Of the nearly 200 kids who complete equipment collection projects on behalf of PIFBS each year, approximately 50% are mitzvah projects. When Evan and his family reached out to us, they knew they wanted to do something even bigger than the typical mitzvah project with ambitious goals to raise enough money to support an entire league. Evan knocked his goal out of the park raising about $15,000 to support the City of Mount Vernon Department of Recreation’s baseball and softball teams! In total, the donation helped 23 teams and nearly 350 kids get brand new equipment to take the field in the fall! Mt. Vernon hosted a distribution date and Evan’s family coordinated a scrimmage for the day between Mt. Vernon and Evan’s team. Thank you to Evan and the entire Schiff Family who helped make this pilot project an incredible success!

  • The Baseball Center – New York, NY

    In June 2016, massive flooding caused by more than 10 inches of rain within a 24 hour span destroyed thousands of homes and displaced entire communities. Within the destruction, schools were condemned and local youth baseball and softball organizations lost everything including equipment, concession stands, and fields. After learning about the floods, the Baseball Center felt compelled to help. The Baseball Center hosted a Hit-a-Thon and online fundraiser that raised more than $15,000 to support teams in West Virginia.

  • Darien Youth Baseball and Softball – Darien, CT

    Taking the uniforms off their backs, Darien (CT) Little League has generously supported PIFBS since 2010 (maybe longer). Each year team moms collect, clean, bag and repurpose 50+ sets of uniforms for shipment to Pitch In For Baseball & Softball. Wearing a uniform is a special part of being on a team and they believe every child should have that experience. In 2014, Darien’s uniforms outfitted 5 teams, including a team of children at a small school in Nicaragua (pictured to above).

  • Zach DeWitt collects 600+ pieces of equipment for PIFB.
