Puritas Baseball is in the process of updating all the equipment used by the players in our In House program. This equipment includes bats, catchers gear, etc. We are doing this to make sure our players have the most updated and safest equipment available. Our players safety is our most important priority.
In order to do this and not have to increase fees that would be passed on to our players families, we will be hosting a Wing Night in order to hopefully cover the total cost. Here are the present details:
When: Saturday, January 26, 2019
Where: West Park Station (at Kamms Corners)
Time: 6:00-8:00 p.m.
We will update this site as soon as more details (cost of a ticket, how to purchase a ticket, etc.) become available.
Donations: Any business hoping to make a donation, which we will make into gift baskets to be raffled off that evening, please call us at 216-862-7618 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
