WCC Teams "Pitch In For Baseball"

| No TrackBacks
As part of the West Coast Conference's commitment to REPRESENT, WCC baseball teams will participate in a conference-wide community service initiative. This will round out all 13 conference-sponsored sports hosting a community service initiative on campus or at their respective championship this year. 

Beginning this April, all nine baseball teams will host a WCC "Pitch In For Baseball" series, which invites players, coaches, and fans to donate gently used baseball equipment, such as gloves, bats, protective gear and other items. Some teams will be providing free admission to those who donate.

All donated items will then be sent to Pitch In For Baseball, a volunteer-driven organization that distributes all usable items to children all over the world. Its mission is "to help kids and make friends all over the world by sharing the great game of baseball." Pitch In For Baseball also believes the sport of baseball is an avenue to teach kids the values of teamwork and sportsmanship, both tenets of the WCC REPRESENT campaign.

Below are the dates for each WCC "Pitch In For Baseball" series across the conference:

Host Institution Date Series Opponent
LMU April 12-14 USF
Gonzaga April 13-15 Santa Clara
USF April 20-22 Gonzaga
BYU May 4-6 San Diego
Saint Mary's May 4-6 Gonzaga
Pepperdine May 10-12 BYU
Portland May 11-13 Saint Mary's
