Parents, players and coaches:
In all the excitement and activity surrounding the Triple Crown 4th of July tournament, you will probably step back at least once and reflect on your good fortune to be involved with this great game.
Wouldn’t this be the perfect time to share that feeling with scores of other athletes who face barriers every day when it comes to taking the field?
Triple Crown Sports and Pitch In For Softball have partnered this summer to encourage teams coming to Colorado for the June 24-July 1 Sparkler/Fireworks/Sparkler Juniors to gather new and gently used gear and pack a bag for donation at the event. Putting this equipment in the hands of athletes who lack the options we all take for granted is a powerful act – you can step in and help when everything from natural disasters to budget cuts put young athletes on the sidelines.
WHAT TO BRING: PIFS will accept all types of equipment and uniform pants. Critical needs are bats, balls, catcher’s gear, RH and LH gloves 11” or larger – pack it all in an equipment bag.
WHERE TO BRING IT: We have dedicated collection sites (from 4-10 p.m.) during the two festival nights at Colorado 4th of July – Wednesday, June 27 at the Christopher Complex in Westminster, and Thursday, June 28 at the Aurora Sports Park.
Are you playing at Sparkler Juniors? Your games typically take place outside of Denver, but we encourage you to fill a bag and make your way to one of the festival nights to join in the effort. Contact a TCS site director if your team needs help getting a bag delivered.
HARD TO FIND EXTRA GEAR? We will have the drop-off sites staffed to also accept your tax-deductible donations via cash or check.
We will take a picture of your team dropping off its gear in front of the PIFS banner and post it through our social media platforms. Let’s build a mountain of bags at the foot of the Rockies!
