Double Play Youth Baseball Program
Collecting like-new and clean equipment so that every kid can play!During these days of pay-to-play, there are many young athletes that simply cannot afford to play baseball and we think that every kid deserves the opportunity to experience America’s favorite pastime. Therefore, Jordan’s Furniture created the Double Play Youth Baseball Program, in partnership with the Red Sox Foundation. The program provides like-new and clean baseball equipment to inner-city youth. Donations are now being collected at all Jordan’s Furniture locations in MA, NH, and RI and at the Taunton Distribution Center. At the conclusion of the Double Play Program each year, a large delivery will be made to Fenway Park so that the donated equipment can be distributed via the Red Sox Foundation’s RBI program.
Like-new, clean baseball and softball equipment accepted:
- Bats (metal only)
- Catcher’s equipment (chest protectors, shin guards, gloves)
- Fielding gloves
- Cleats (metal and plastic)
- Baseball and softballs (new)
