Sonora, CA — Hundreds of children living in underserved communities will soon experience America´s favorite pastime, thanks to JS West Lumber and Ace Hardware.
Throughout the month of August, the Sonora store will be a drop off location for new and “almost-new” baseball equipment.
Manager of JS West Lumber, David May says gloves, helmets, bats and any other items in good working order will be accepted and shipped to Pitch In For Baseball, where the gear will be sent where it is needed most.
“Pitch In For Baseball gives kids an opportunity to play ball despite their lack of equipment. It´s a fantastic organization and our store is proud to ‘pitch in´ and lend a hand,” said May.

In 2005 alone, Pitch In For Baseball collected enough equipment to provide for hurricane affected regions in the Gulf Coast, including New Orleans, Biloxi, and Mobile, Alabama.
