Youth baseball is growing rapidly in Nigeria and we’re sending donated baseball equipment to make sure that kids have bats, balls, catcher’s gear and helmets to play the game safely.
On June 5, 2015, BUF executive director John Fitzgerald drove a rented UHAUL truck 2.5 hours each way to PIFB’s headquarters in Harleysville, PA. From there, the equipment will be checked and packed with additional equipment from PIFB. The equipment is tentatively due to arrive in Nigeria this fall.
We’re very excited about the opportunity to expand our operations to Africa. Special thanks to everyone who donated equipment for this and other projects, including Hardball Training Center, Mforce Sports, Kensico Little League, and others.
