Improving lives through baseball – Every year Helping Kids Round First brings baseball equipment and provides instruction to youth in rural Nicaraguan communities. This year the Helping Kids Round First dinner went virtual. The evening included stories about the work that Helping Kids Round First does in Nicaragua surrounding baseball, softball, farming projects as well as providing hospital supplies and food to some of the poorest parts of Nicaragua. There were hundreds of viewers from various countries and states. Baseball has a unique ability to both bring together different cultures and teach life lessons helping to provide a foundation on which to improve lives.
Helping Kids Round First delegations travel to Nicaragua every 4-6 weeks bringing baseball and softball gear, school supplies, medical equipment, and agricultural resources to impoverished communities. Baseball has been the vehicle for creating long-term, sustainable improvements in the region.
