Meet the Sluggers
For children 3 and under, we donate a baseball, a baseball case, an ink pad, a mini Louisville Slugger bat and a Lil Silver Slugger Award which is given to the toughest and bravest Lil’ Sluggers after their surgeries. Children 4 and older have a hard time fitting their hand prints on the ball, so we came up with a new certificate where they can put their name and hand print. In developing this certificate it has also made it possible for us to reach more families. Our Lil’ Sluggers also get their very own personalized baseball card on our website.
Angels Above the Outfield
The hardest thing about having an organization like this is that not every baby makes it through their surgeries; in remembrance of those babies we donate either a full size Louisville Slugger Bat or a heart frame made up of old baseball seams. Which ever one is chosen will have all of their child’s information on it as you can see pictured on the bats. These babies are also remembered with an online baseball card that can be viewed in the “Angels Above the Outfield” section of our website. We have recently opened this section to also remember the donor families that have lost their children.
