The Willmar Stingers are excited to announce the organization is accepting applications for the Share the Glove Youth Baseball Equipment Grant Program in conjunction with the Northwoods League Foundation. The Share the Glove program provides youth baseball and softball equipment annually in every Northwoods League market. This spring a youth baseball team in West Central Minnesota will be receiving more than $2,000 worth of baseball equipment as part of the 2024 “Share the Glove” Youth Equipment Grant Program! Entering its seventh year of the Share the Glove initiative, the Northwoods League Foundation has awarded more than $220,000 in baseball and softball equipment to youth organizations.
The Northwoods League Foundation (“Foundation”) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves as a vehicle to transform a shared passion for baseball into positive change and support for communities. The Mission of the Northwoods League Foundation is: To utilize the game of baseball to enrich the quality of life for children and families with an enduring and caring focus on Northwoods League communities.
In support of this mission, the Foundation has announced it is continuing its Share the Glove initiative launched in 2018 for the 2024 season. The Foundation will be awarding twenty-three (23) equipment grants, each with an approximate retail value of $2,000, to youth baseball and softball organizations across the twenty-three (23) communities in which a Northwoods League Affiliate currently operates.
