This Sunday, June 9 the Nationals will host a baseball equipment drive before they take on the Minnesota Twins at 1:35 p.m. at Nationals Park. The drive will take place at the Center Field Gates from when gates open at 11:00 am until the end of the third inning. During this time, fans are encouraged to donate new and used baseballs, softballs, bats, batting gloves, catcher’s equipment, youth batting helmets, bases, baseball pants and cleats. All equipment donated will benefit youth baseball in Washington, D.C. and will specifically help the Capitol Hill Little League.

The drive will be hosted in conjunction with The Baseball Tomorrow Fund, which will provide a $5,000 grant to Capitol Hill Little League. The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is a combined effort between Major League Baseball and its players to promote and help fund baseball and softball.

Ian Desmond is again serving as the player ambassador for this initiative for the second season in a row. Desmond has a history of supporting youth baseball and has previously visited Capitol Hill Little League. Desmond will be on hand for Sunday’s pregame ceremonies as the Baseball Tomorrow Fund presents its check to Capitol Hill Little League.
