Live: Trumbull student to talk about sharing his love of baseball with needy
Connor started the organization in 2014, when he was 14 years old, with the intention of improving the lives of underprivileged kids who love the game. The organization supplies baseballs to children who cannot afford them, enabling them to play America’s national pastime.
Connor will be interviewed on HAN Radio’s Nutmeg Sports, by hosts Rob Adams and Paul Silverfarb. The show starts at 2 p.m. and can be heard live at TrumbullTimes.com or watch live streaming video of the show at http://www.nfhsnetwork.com/events/hersam-acorn/a9629b014d. The interview can also be heard at HANRadio.com
Bailo said he was inspired to start the organization after taking a trip to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn. He noticed some players on international teams lacked the right equipment and many were helped through donations.
“While many people are willing to donate bats, gloves, and cleats, that type of equipment can all be outgrown quickly. Not many people donate baseballs,” Connor writes. “Baseballs are the essential piece of the game, that can never be outgrown, and even last a lifetime.”
His goal is to collection 1 million baseballs for needy kids.
