Initially founded as Pitch In For Baseball (PIFB), the organization was created with the purpose of collecting new and gently used equipment to redistribute to children around the globe enabling them to play ball. Throughout our 15-year history, we have always completed softball projects, and in recent years the demand for softball equipment grants has grown. As we explored prospective partnerships to secure resources to support the increased interest in softball, we were met with some concern/confusion over the implied exclusivity of the “Pitch In For Baseball” brand. As such, our Board of Directors recognized the need to rename our organization to more accurately reflect the work that we do. In 2018, we officially became Pitch In For Baseball & Softball (PIFBS)!
PIFBS believes that lack of equipment for whatever reason should not be the barrier to participation and that every child who wants to play should have an opportunity to do so. Over the past 15+ years, PIFBS has expanded programming and partners to help more than 900,000 boys and girls get on the field in every state in the U.S. and more than 100 countries internationally.
