Austintown Community Baseball hosts athletic shoe drive

Austintown Community Baseball is hosting an athletic shoe drive fundraiser during the spring, summer and fall seasons to raise money for players’ families through a new campaign, the Bullpen Relief Fund. The baseball organization is creating this fund to benefit families in need and to give back to the community in other ways like donating to local charities. ACB will earn funds based on the total quantity of pairs of gently worn, used and new sneakers collected. ‚ãGotSneakers‚ã, a social enterprise, will issue funds in compensation for the collected sneakers. Those funds will benefit all players and spectators at the ACB facilities. Anyone can help by simply donating gently worn, used and new sneakers and cleats at Libbee Field, located at 324 North Kimberly Road in Austintown, or the Stryffeler Indoor Batting Barn and the Clubhouse at Champ Park, located at 600 North Raccoon Road in Austintown during evening games.
