WASHINGTON (WNEW) — Some underprivileged little league players in the district will soon be getting some equipment of their own, thanks to the Washington Nationals and their fans.
The Nationals and the “Baseball Tomorrow Fund” set camp in front of Nats Park Sunday collecting donations of new and used baseball equipment before the start of their game against the New York Mets through the third inning.
Cory Jordan, President of the southern district Little League in Wards 7 and 8, says kids in that league will be getting this equipment soon. This drive has been done by the Baseball Tomorrow Fund for several years.
Tables adorned with new and used baseball equipment sat outside the center field gate of Nats Park. Little League equipment can be expensive, and not everyone is able to afford it.
People attending the Nats game Sunday came with extra bats, balls, bases and other equipment in hand.
