Gloves 4 Troops: Baseball for Our Soldiers Abroad!

I stumbled on this this morning and I had to share.  This message below is from Vance Albitz (@VanceAlbitz), the pro ballplayer who is leading the effort:

“Gloves 4 Troops is aiming to send away 1,000 baseball gloves to troops before the start of Spring Training, 2013.  Recently, I was reading an article on our troops based in Afghanistan.  I was intrigued to hear the response of one soldier when asked the question, “What would you like people back home to send you?”

“Baseball gloves and a baseball.”

It’s that simple.  I can’t think of a more patriotic thing to do today.  If you’ve got a serviceable glove lying around or some baseballs, or $20 for shipping, this is a NO-BRAINER!  These are the people that give us all, even the pros, the freedom to play ball!  I can’t stress enough what a great cause this is.

Here’s how you’ll do it:

Here’s the document you need to send with your glove:

Vance has already sent 547 gloves.

If you can’t give a glove, which not all of us can, share this with your teammates.  Somebody will have one lying around.
