Baseball Equipment to the Dominican Republic

 

Eden Prairie Baseball Association is pleased to report that the container filled with baseball equipment and uniforms has arrived in the Dominican Republic safe and sound.  Through the assistance of Pastor Pedro Luis Adames Valdez and his entire ministry team, they have begun the distribution to baseball players, coaches and teams throughout the Puerto Plata province of the DR.  On behalf of the DR recipients, EPBA is grateful for the outpouring of support shown by its baseball families and the entire Eden Prairie community as well as the other Twin Cities baseball associations (Edina, Shakopee, Chaska, Hopkins, and Prior Lake) who made contributions.  Special thanks to the Minnesota Twins Community Fund and Twins President Dave St. Peter for their generous financial contribution to this great cause. 

 

Below are some additional photos showing the arrival of the equipment (with Pastor Pedro on the right) along with many of the excited youth and ballplayers with their new gear and equipment.  This would not have been possible without your support and contributions.
