Morgan Allen Continues to Pitch In!

Recently, Morgan Allen, our North Texas Vice President of Collections, sent a huge shipment of baseball equipment to the G4G Headquarters in Houston, TX. Over the past two months, Morgan has been collecting equipment from many of his baseball friends in Denton, TX.  He also collected a great set of baseball uniforms and hats from the Sox organization!

Morgan sent us 8 bats, 17 hats, 4 pairs of cleats, 3 pairs of batting gloves, 11 gray pants, 18 white pants, 7 shirts and several pieces of new baseball protective gear! This equipment he sent us will be helped in our shipment to Pitch in for Baseball, a baseball charity quite like ours.

Morgan continues to excel in both academics and athletics. This summer he is playing baseball for his travel team while also taking classes at North Central Texas College! We wish Morgan the best in everything this summer.

Lamar Texans Baseball Makes A Huge Uniform Donation

Yesterday, Coach David Munoz and the Lamar Baseball Coaching Staff continues their incredible support of Gloves for Good by donating a large number of gently used game ready baseball uniforms to Gloves for Good. The donation included 79 pairs of white baseball pants, 19 pairs of grey baseball pants 72 white team jerseys, 41 blue jerseys and 20 pairs of blue training shorts.

The Lamar Texans finished their season going undefeated in district play were the district champions in the 18-6A district. We were eventually knocked out of the state playoffs but at one point, we were the #1 ranked team in Texas and the 12th ranked team in the country! I was the starting third baseman for the team.  G4G wishes all the best to the Lamar Baseball family in their next season.

Timbergrove Sports Association's Continues Their Active Support Of G4G

Timbergrove Sports Association, a local Houston Little League, continues their support of G4G through their most recent donation.

Joe Lipper, Connor Franey and I drove to the field early last week to collect the equipment from their groundskeeper, Clifford and Chris Broussard, Co-Director of Building and Grounds. They collected the equipment from the very generous parents and players at TSA who donated a plethora of equipment including 22 bats, over 15 helmets, 11 gloves, some cleats, and a lot of uniforms.

Donation to Briarmeadow Charter School and Coach Levine

Today Joe Lipper and I met up Coach Steven Levine, who coaches 5th through 8th graders at Briarmeadow Charter School.  Briarmeadow is a Pre-K thru 8th grade International Baccalaureate School located in West Houston with about 600 students.  Connor Franey and Will Reeves (who joined G4G at the end of last year) came up big by helping us find the -5 and -3 bats the boys needed.  Budget Sporting Goods gave us a great discount on two of the bats and an anonymous donor provided the 8 gloves.  Coach Levine was really happy we could help out especially this early in the season. 

Joe, Connor and Will all joined Gloves for Good in December and have been a great addition to the team – without their help in pulling all the equipment together we would not have been able to get the equipment to the players at Briarmeadow as fast as we did.  Thanks guys
