Youth Baseball Field in Evansville Faces Setback After Concession Stand Was Robbed
The community is rallying together to help support youth sports, but more donations are still needed.
The Importance of Youth Sports
The positive impact that sports can have on kids is truly underrated. I grew up playing sports (albeit, not well) and watching my brother play sports (he, on the other hand, played very well). I have many fond memories of spending Saturday mornings on the soccer field or watching my brother play baseball. And it turns out that participating in sports can have a very positive impact on kids.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says that sports are a great way to help kids develop physical skills, get exercise, learn teamwork, learn to play fair, and are a great way to help kids make friends. So there are many great reasons why the community should help support youth sports programs.
Evansville South Baseball Robbed
Evansville South Baseball is located at Pollack and Vann in Evansville and provides baseball programs for kids aged 4-14. Unfortunately earlier this week Evansville South Baseball had their concession stand robbed, and they are in need of donations of items to help re-stock the concession stand.
City Councilwoman Missy Mosby took to Facebook and shared the news of the robbery with a call to action:
