A batting cage dedication will take place on Thursday, November 17th at 5 pm at the TJ Robinson Life Center, Blackridge Road, Hope Mills, NC, as part of a donation of baseball equipment by the Fayetteville Woodpeckers.
For many young people in nearby schools and towns, sports go beyond simple enjoyment. Every year, more than 60 million kids and teenagers between the ages of 6 and 18 take part in organized sports in local schools and youth sports centers around them. Additionally, at least 61% of people who participated in sports regularly as children have higher rates of success in life, better communication skills, lower rates of drug and alcohol abuse, higher standards of living, and more active relationships with their families, partners, communities, and social networks.
Through the TJ Robinson Life Center, the Fayetteville Woodpeckers have provided baseball equipment to promote youth participation in baseball and sports. Thanks to the donation, young people will have free access to baseball equipment and other possibilities to learn about the sport. The TJ Robinson Life Center is a multi-sport and community gym in Hope Mills, North Carolina, that provides young people of all ages, races, religions, and socioeconomic backgrounds with equal opportunities. Youths in nearby Fayetteville schools and neighborhoods now have access to batting cages and other baseball gear like bats, gloves, helmets, and pitching machines. The donation aims to inspire young people to learn about baseball and get involved in the sport without the financial obstacles that could have otherwise prohibited them from doing so enabling them to study, develop, and thrive in a stable environment.
