Back on June 30, 2015 Pat James got an email from Jackson Hicks, a senior at East Chapel Hill High School. After reading an article about Long Ball and our association with Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI). He offered to gather baseball equipment that he and his teammates had outgrown. In the true spirit of sportsmanship he wanted to share with Long Ball and RBI.
Pat explained that since our players span the ages of 13 to 18 and are all sizes, any and all donations would be welcome.
Later in July he got together with Pat and dropped off what he had gathered so far. Here’s a picture of what he had.
We are are overwhelmed by his generosity, thoughtfulness and sportsmanship.
