A Scarsdale boy who wants all kids to have the privilege of playing baseball is giving back to the community.
Evan Schiff, 12, along with the help of his parents and “Pitch in for Baseball and Softball,” raised enough money to donate $20,000 worth of baseball equipment to the Mount Vernon Youth Baseball Program.
“I'm very excited for the kids of Mount Vernon and Scarsdale," says Evan’s father, Lance. “I think more people should follow the lead that my son took on here to provide baseball equipment to kids around the world.”
Dwayne Brown, commissioner of Mount Vernon's Youth Baseball League, says the program has grown considerably from just a few dozen players to more than 300. That growth occurred after Mayor Richard Thomas made the program free.
“It gives me the proper tools I need to promote and get other kids involved.”
