Final Report

For two years, Pitch In For Baseball has been working with the Pakistan Federation Baseball in the hopes of securing the funding to send baseball equipment to children in Pakistan.  In a country where cricket dominates, baseball is slowly increasing in popularity with children, men, and women yet the necessary equipment is not available.  While we have not yet raised all of the funds needed to support this project on a meaningful scale, we have started dialogue with a Pakistani foundation that runs a Sports for All program in partnership with local schools.  We are exploring a partnership and program whereby we would provide equipment to schools with a strong measurement componenent.  It is our intention that we would also send equipment to the Pakistan Federation Baseball to grow their youth baseball programs.  All funds generated through Global Giving to date will be earmarked to support the equipment and its delivery to these groups. 

While we are closing this project on Global Giving, we will continue to update donors on our progress.  We are determined to get equipment to Pakistani children.  Thank you for your support.

Baseball in Pakistan

Baseball was introduced in Pakistan in 1992.  Cricket is still the country's dominant sport, yet baseball is growing in popularity amongst children.  However, baseball equipment is not available for purchase in Pakistan and it is expensive to ship there.  Pitch In For Baseball and Pakistan would like to partner to get the necessary equipment to children interested in playing.

To date, we have raised nearly $200 for the project.  In addition, we are working with and exploring delivery opportunities with IBAF (International Baseball Federation), a long-time PIFB partner.  We are optimistic that we will be able to deliver equipment to Pakistan this year. We look forward to the opportunity to assist in their growth efforts.

Thank you for your support and we will continue to update you on our progress.

Youth Baseball in Uganda

In Uganda, the Little League program is part of the International School, a unique school that links academics and sports.  Children who attend the International School receive a quality education with special emphasis on math and science while also participating in a broad range of sports, including baseball.  However, baseball equipment is not available for purchase in Africa, which requires the International School to be creative to support their baseball dreams.

Pitch In For Baseball and Uganda Little League have been partnering since 2009 to get equipment to the International School.  Over the past three years, we have shipped more than 10,000 pieces of equipment (both new and used), totaling an estimated $160,000 value.

In late January 2015, the Uganda Little League received nearly $10,000 worth of equipment, which supported 6 new teams.  This month, Uganda Little League will begin their 2014 Little League World Series journey with the Uganda National Tournaments, which will determine the Uganda representatives for the Europe/Africa Little League Regional Tournaments held in Kutno, Poland.  The winners from there will then be the representatives for the Little League World Series.

Pitch In For Baseball makes one very large donation to Uganda Little League each year.  We not only provide the majority of the equipment (both new and used) but also serve as a central entity for accepting donations earmarked for Uganda from other businesses, individuals and communities.

Thank you for helping to grow youth baseball in Uganda!
