Public Service Message

Hi all!

I don’t generally do this but I thought this was an important message to pass on.  I know some of you are pet owners and I know that some of you are considering becoming a pet owner.  I also know this message has been publicized in the past but probably without the cold, hard evidence as noted in this picture. 

Please spay or neuter your pets!  This is a tragic example of an in-bread dog!  I am sure it will serve to reinforce this matter to each person who views it.

Babe Ruth League Membership FROM:

RE: We Need Your Help As we have said many times, when you are part of Babe Ruth League, Inc., youre considered family. The program goes well beyond the field of play. As many of you are aware, Hurricane Irene recently ravaged the east coast with high winds, power outages and extensive flooding. Many, many Babe Ruth league programs experienced devastating loss from this horrific storm.
Imagine the impact of losing your fields and your equipment to a natural disaster. How would your communitys youth fill the time they would have spent on the field? These leagues need assistance to get back on their feet and restore the simple pleasure of baseball and softball in their communities.
Our partner, Pitch In For Baseball (PIFB) is currently working with many of our leagues via sizeable donations of helmets, bats, uniforms and other equipment. PIFB is a nonprofit youth baseball and softball charity that collects and delivers new and gently used baseball and softball equipment to communities in need, both nationally and internationally.

PIFB is doing a great job, but they need your assistance.. Therefore, I am reaching out to our entire membership to step up to the plate and support Pitch In For Baseball.
How can you help? The gloves, bats and other baseball equipment that's sitting in your closet or garage right now can open a whole world of opportunities for the youth affected by Hurricane Irene. Pitch in your used equipment or donate money to give the gift of baseball to a deserving child.
PIFB is accepting donations of new or gently-used:
Fielding gloves
Youth bats
Catcher's mitts and protective gear
Batting helmets
Baseballs and softballs
Soft cover balls for Tee Ball
Rubber baseball cleats
Youth uniform pants (sets of 12, or more, if not white or gray)
Youth uniform shirts and hats (sets of 12, or more)
Umpire protective gear
Team equipment bags
Sets of bases
Batting tees
Pitching machines
If you can, please make a donation, or if your community could benefit, please contact PIFB.
