TL;DR Version: BASEBALL!!!! Donate money to help reform the Olney Redbirds American Legion Baseball Team. Every dollar will help cover the cost for reforming this team and continuing the long tradition of American Legion Baseball in Philadelphia.
Help Support American Legion Baseball
The first American Legion World Series was held in Philadelphia in 1926. Since then American Legion baseball has helped shape the lives of countless of young men across America. Today, the program registers over 5,400 teams in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.. Since its inception, the league has had 10 million players, and nearly 60 percent of current college players are program graduates. More than half of current major-leaguers played Legion Baseball. So did almost every working MLB manager, along with several former commissioners. In all, more than 60 program graduates are in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
I participated in American Legion baseball when I was in high school and I’d like to give the same opportunity to a new generation of ballplayers. With your help, I want to resurrect the Olney Redbirds. The Olney Redbirds have not had a team since they won the county championship in 2011. With your help, we can change that. Every donation helps and every person you share this with helps. Please spread the word to everyone you know and I will owe you one.
Thank you all in advance and I hope to see you out on the diamond this year!!!
