Tritons' equipment drive wraps up

The final numbers for Project Beisbol are in.

White Rock-South Surrey Baseball Association’s used baseball equipment drive – which was spearheaded by White Rock Tritons’ pitcher Keaton Edwards earlier this spring – wrapped up last week, after one final donation collection day.

In total, between the Tritons’ donations and other WRSSBA families, more than 1,000 pounds of gear was collected for underprivileged ball players in Latin America.

In total, 178 bats, 45 gloves, 77 batting helmets, 34 pairs of cleats, 220 pairs of baseball pants and 32 sets of catching gear were collected, along with various umpire gear, baseball jerseys, hats, jackets and other miscellaneous items.

The equipment will now be shipped to various Latin American countries via Portland-based Project Beisbol.

With Edwards is now planning to send emails to other BC Premier Baseball League teams, challenging them to organize similar programs in their own communities.
