Gloves 4

This morning I was watching MLB's Hot Stove, a terrific show detailing the off season news and moves in big league baseball. 

One of the segments involved the story of Vance Albiz, a minor league ballplayer in the St. Louis Cardinals organization.

Vance has started  

Gloves 4

and his goal is to send 1.000 baseballs and baseball gloves to our troops around the world.

As Vance puts it on the website...

"Sending our troops our National Pastime."

As soon as I saw this I felt the need to get involved, and I'm going to try and get our local baseball teams and area businesses to donate to this great cause for our servicemen and servicewomen.

Here's the video from Vance, please watch it.

Please go to the website,, or...

Donate gloves, baseballs, or money
through the mail:

Vance Albitz
c/o Gloves 4 Troops
23133 Hawthorne Blvd Ste. 303
Torrance, CA 90505

Also, Vance is on Twitter, at or you can email Vance at

There is also a monthly prize drawing for a personalized bat made by World Bats.

The donations are only taken until February 23rd, so let's all get behind Vance.

If you're a baseball blogger, please write about this cause, Tweet it out, post it on Facebook, whatever you can do.

Ball players like Vance are what makes baseball great, and for me, our help to Vance and his cause should be a no brain doubter.

Please give what you can, that glove that you haven't used in forever, that extra baseball, or two, you have, or that $20.00 that you found in a pair of old bluejeans.

For me, I will be following Vance, not only in this cause, but as his baseball career unfolds.

Let's all wish God's blessings on Vance, and this project.

May God Bless our troops.

Play Ball!
