Bill is the inspiration behind Pitch in for Baseball & Softball. As a diehard Philadelphia Phillies fan and longtime supporter of Little League International, Bill wants to share his passion for baseball and softball with boys and girls in the United States and around the world. In 2004, while on a trip to Poland he became aware of the lack of the availability of baseball equipment for Little League players. That provided the initial spark that helped establish Pitch in for Baseball & Softball. Bill and his wife Beth reside in Ambler, Pa.
“What inspired me to get involved with PIFBS the most was watching Little League Baseball games in Poland and discovering that many kids did not have their own baseball gloves.”
