"Not only would it equate to a donation of $10,000 to USA Cares, but it means that 555 of our men and women would get this awesome symbol of love and appreciation," added Berger.
“We take pride in the fact we don’t just offer premium baseball equipment to the
masses. Any ability we have to help out a worthy cause we jump at. USA Cares is a
very reputable charity and when we presented the idea to them they immediately fell in love with the idea."
"Baseball is very much still America’s favorite pastime, and in my opinion it’s about time we helped our own soldiers in the process," added Berger.
The bats, which sell for $80 + SH feature a stars and stripes logo and personalization at the end of the bat. The first line features the soldier's name and rank followed by the second line, where the purchaser will be able to display a personal message to their soldier.
“I know quite a few friends and family that are overseas defending our freedom and
for me this is just a small token of appreciation for their efforts.”
“There is nothing better than a child of a soldier wanting to honor their father or mother by using a bat with their name on it. I hope these bats will provide them with the same courage and grit their fathers/mothers possess to help them get through an at bat or the entire season."
"Baseball has stood the test of time and we only hope that this will provide the same strength to these families to get through this time.”
