Wilson Sporting Goods

Wilson Sporting Goods has served as Pitch In For Baseball & Softball’s top equipment provider for donations large and small.

PIFBS and Wilson joined forces on a number of important projects over the years, including a series of packing and distribution events to assist schools in Chicago, IL, home of Wilson’s headquarters. The Softball Signature Projects in 2018 and 2019 distributed much-needed equipment to 30 school softball programs throughout the city of Chicago.

In 2021 Wilson provided equipment for PIFBS equipment distribution and clinic with MLB player Dee Strange-Gordon. Wilson also supports PIFBS with donations of excess equipment throughout the year and proceeds from the Get a Glove, Give a Glove Program.
