League 42 organizing drive to replace stolen little league equipment

So some jerk decided it was a smart idea to steal a bunch of equipment from League 42 – a nonprofit in Wichita that provides low-cost alternatives to urban youth to play baseball. Authorities say around 200 bats were stolen, as well as equipment bags, gloves, baseballs, and some sound equipment they use for a PA system during the season.

It’s a horrible deal, so we wanna help.

Group officials have set up a new or used equipment drive this Saturday from 1-3 at McAdams Park in Wichita.

They are looking for:

  • Child-sized bats (26-33 inches)
  • Gloves
  • Helmets
  • baseballs

Monetary donations can be arranged by emailing Lutz at league42wichita@gmail.com.

The season begins in mid-April with practices starting March 11. The league serves about 600 boys and girls ages 5 to 14. Despite the thefts, the 2019 season will go on.
