Foundation Steps Up To The Plate To Cover Cost Of Uniforms For Baseball Showcase

Cindy Dupont and Carolyn Symonds show off the team uniforms.

On Saturday, Jan. 12, players of all ages were introduced to their “buddy” on the fields at Village Park in Wellington for what turned out to be a fantastic baseball showcase put together by the League of Yes, a nonprofit organization that provides those with special needs a chance to play baseball in a judgment-free zone. The event was staged in cooperation with the Village of Wellington.

The Wellington Community Foundation stepped up to the plate when event organizer Kris Riedell reached out to the foundation in search of uniform donations. The foundation’s board of directors voted to sponsor uniforms for all 20 players and 30 of their “buddy” partners.

The Wellington Community Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization committed to “Building a Stronger Community” by helping Wellington’s children, seniors and veterans by supporting and improving their quality of life.
