Equipment donation saves the season for 120 kids

About 120 kids were nearly robbed of their baseball season after thieves walked off with 50 aluminum bats and 10 sets of catcher's equipment from the Garfield Heights Baseball League equipment shed. 

But after seeing a local news report, the Cleveland Indians stepped up to the plate to save the season.

The Tribe teamed up with Louisville Slugger and local businesses to donate thousands of dollars worth of new equipment.

"One of our organization's guiding commitments is to our community, and we're proud to assist in the league's time of need," said Rebecca Kodysh, the club's Executive Director of Community Impact in a press release.

The new gear will be presented to the league in a ceremony attended by members of the Cleveland Indians organization.
