The days are warmer and the grass is greener, signaling the start of youth baseball leagues. To help usher in the new season, there is a drive Saturday (April 5) in Danville to allow local people to donate used baseball equipment to benefit young players in need.
All equipment is packaged up and delivered to a deserving youth baseball program in the Bay Area.
Gear should be suitable for kids from 7-14. Mitts, cleats, practice pants, bats, helmets, and catcher's gear in good shape are appreciated. People can also donate gift cards to sporting goods stores or sponsor a team.
Items may be dropped off from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at the table near the Snack Shack at Osage Park, 816 Brookside Drive in Danville.
