9/1 Equipment drive Saturday
The Cubs are hosting a baseball equipment collective drive on Saturday at Wrigley Field. The effort is in support of the ongoing commitment from Major League Baseball, its clubs and the players to increase opportunities for youth participation in baseball and softball. This is part of the Baseball Tomorrow Fund.
Fans are invited to donate new and used equipment at specially marked tables on Clark Street between Addison and Waveland Streets, beginning at 10 a.m. CT Saturday. Donations will benefit Streator Youth Baseball. A tornado severely damaged Southside Diamonds, the baseball fields of Streator Youth Baseball, earlier this summer.
