Get Stuff for Your Little League Team from David Wright and Nike

Received this email today:

This summer, Nike and David Wright are giving local Little Leagues the opportunity to look and feel like their favorite Big League team. This season, for every homerun the Mets third baseman hits, Nike will donate $1,000 worth of new equipment to a selected Little League team in the five boroughs. So far, $12,000 has been allotted for the program from Wright's 12 home runs.

Players, coaches, friends and family are encouraged to nominate their hometown teams by telling Nike and Wright why they love baseball and why their team deserves new gear. All submissions should be sent to WrightOn@nike.com by June 30, 2007.

If you're involved with a Little League team, why not take a shot at this?

Good thing they're not basing this program on Mets wins in June...

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

How about a group of 15 year olds playing in a 15-18 year old league getting dominated does that count? :D

Gee, that sounds like the Mets...

No for it to be the mets it would have to be a bunch of 18 year olds getting dominated by a bunch of 15-16 year olds ;)

I'd laugh if there wasn't a grain of truth in that...
