Cleveland Indians team up with Louisville Slugger, Dick’s Sporting Goods to donate new gear to Garfield Heights Baseball League
The Cleveland Indians donated new catchers’ gear to the Garfield Heights Baseball League on Thursday night, after the league was a victim of theft from its storage facility last week.
The Indians, thanks in part to Louisville Slugger, presented the new gear to the league – including players and coaches – on Thursday night.
“One of our organization’s guiding commitments is to our community, and we’re proud to assist in the league’s time of need,” said Rebecca Kodysh, the club’s Executive Director of Community Impact.
Each of five divisions – Pee Wee, Minor, Major, Colt and Pony – will get new catchers’ gear. The teams have been practicing, but the league was in danger of not being able to begin without the stolen gear being replaced.
