Troop 325 Eagle Scout candidate Jonathan Gugger collected 505 pounds of baseball and softball gear for Pitch In for Baseball as part of his Eagle Scout project in April.

Donations of equipment, clothing and cleats came from Richmond Little League and families, Shorewood students, Shoreline CC softball team, and the community at large.

Jonathan explained, "I wanted to get involved with Pitch In for Baseball because I thought an equipment collection would be a great way to promote my love of the sport and complete my Eagle Scout Project. I was happy to help communities that lost everything from Hurricane Sandy before the baseball season started. It is cool to think that maybe I contributed to introducing baseball to another child in our country or somewhere in the world."
