Charles Heller was a lot of things- a loving husband, a great dad and grandfather, and a best friend. But if you knew anything about my dad, his true love was baseball. Not only did he enjoy watching his beloved Yankees but he coached Little League in Westport for nearly seven years. So on what would have been my dad's 70th birthday I wanted to do something special. I am starting a fundraising campaign called Charlie's Angels for Pitch In For Baseball and Softball. Read below to learn more about the organization and be a part of my dad's Little League Angels.
Founded in 2005, Pitch In For Baseball & Softball believes that baseball and softball are effective tools for youth development. Not only do they give kids a chance to be a kid and play, but it also helps to create healthy communities, break down barriers, and instill valuable life lessons. PIFBS aims to reduce barriers to play and bring communities together by collecting and redistributing much needed baseball/softball equipment to groups serving under-resourced children. Since 2005, PIFB has donated more than $9 million in equipment to help 800,000 kids play ball in every state and 100 countries worldwide.
