Chris Evans, I AM KING FOUNDATION
"The Keepers of the Legends equipment donation has helped out tremendously! Being able to send a player home with a "good" bat is an exciting experience. Baseball has become such an expensive sport. Many times, I prefer a player to use the $200 "team" bat during the game because the $65 bat that their parents could afford puts them at a disadvantage. Thanks to the Keepers of the Legend, we received some really good bats that probably only had a year or two of experience. Kids out grow bats so fast, its cool that people are donating bats with a lot of life still left in them. Those same bats are smacking baseballs and putting smiles on faces instead of collecting dust in the garage. That's what its all about!
We also received a brand new catchers mitt that we gave to one of our players. His father was literally in tears because he's wanted to purchase his son a mitt, but just could not afford to do so. Small gestures like this will fuel a lifetime of sports memories for families."
