Restart Youth Baseball in Japan

Japan October Youth Baseball Update

Pitch In For Baseball’s program to support youth baseball in Japan has expanded significantly.  Due to a partnership with the Major League Baseball Players Trust, PIFB will now be assisting 32 school-based programs in the town of Ishinomaki in addition to the 4 Little League programs in Myagi prefecture.  Funding from this partnership has enabled us to order new equipment from Wilson sporting goods and will pack this equipment in individual “team kits” once we receive it in our warehouse.  We anticipate delivering the equipment to the effected communities in November.


About Project Reports

Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.

If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.


Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
