Let’s take a look back at the best moments in July.

New Hampshire Fishercats

Travel with us to enjoy Double-A Minor League Baseball and feel the heat from the local rivalry as the Hartford Yard Goats visit the New Hampshire Fishercats on Friday, July 28th!

July 7th – $5 Friday – Part 1

This $5 Friday, we are inspired by Cali who had never played softball before until this past season. Initially, Cali was shy and nervous about playing the catcher position. That changed when she saw the donated gear from PIFBS.

After her first practice, Cali was hooked on catching and wanted to do nothing else. She was constantly asking to suit up for every practice and game! The team improved significantly with the gear from PIFBS, making them feel unstoppable. Your contribution can help us continue to build this confidence for girls and boys around the world. On $5 Friday, we kindly ask you to consider donating at pifbs.org or Venmo @pifbs.

Sophia Donation

Coming from the Constitution State of Connecticut, Sophia decided to run an equipment collection for PIFBS! Sophia’s friend, Maddie, had completed projects before with PIFBS and urged her to do the same for her hometown. Sophia had a blast! Thank you for your donation, Sophia!

July 14th – $5 Friday – Part 2

Today is $5 Friday and we wanted to share our appreciation to our PIFBS equipment grant recipients. We love receiving thank-you letters and notes from players all over the globe! PIFBS was founded on the idea of providing all children the same opportunity to play ball.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are proud to help over 1.2 million kids play baseball and softball in nearly 120 countries. However, there is still work to be done!

On $5 Friday, your donation can help us expand our impact even further and help us provide equipment for even more kids. We kindly ask you to consider donating at pifbs.org or to use Venmo @pifbs.

Lancaster Barnstormers

Thank you to everyone that joined us at the Lancaster Barnstormers game this past weekend! We had a blast as Pitch In For Baseball & Softball was honored during the Lancaster Barnstormers’ Non-Profit Spotlight Night. Thank you Barnstormers for your support!

July 21st – $5 Friday – Part 3

Charlie tragically lost both his father and grandfather in a fishing accident before the baseball season began. Playing baseball with his friends helped him regain his confidence and found comfort in the game. His mother noticed how much happier he was when baseball started and playing with his friends. Your donation can help us continue to build this confidence for kids like Charlie. On $5 Friday, we kindly ask you to consider donating at https://pifbs.org or through Venmo @pifbs

Athletes Unlimited Begins

The Athletes Unlimited Softball season is here and Aleshia Ocasio is back in action, competing and supporting PIFBS once again! Join us tomorrow in cheering Aleshia on as each win she earns results in a donation to PIFBS. You can help Aleshia’s efforts to empower more girls to play softball by texting “AO8” to 44-321.

July 28th – $5 Friday – Part 4

Before the season began, Sankofa Freedom Academy discovered a large amount of their equipment had been stolen. Not having gear to use, the team feared they would not be able to play this year. So, PIFBS stepped in and provided an equipment grant that “truly helped save our kids”!

 Thanks to the PIFBS grant, parents were relieved of the financial burden of purchasing new equipment. Your donation on $5 Friday helps us keep school programs running. We kindly ask you to consider donating at https://pifbs.org or through Venmo @pifbs
