EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENT

Updated Wednesday August 3, 2016 by David Fought.

West Oaks Little League was started in 1976 and has served Alief and Fort Bend communities as a place to play a favorite past time of America, baseball; for many years.  As of April 19, 2016, West Oaks Little League’s fields were affected by the storms that hit the Houston area.  Our fields are a part of Harris County’s flood plain and harbor the water from Addicks Reservoir and Dam; this is to keep the surrounding neighborhoods/areas from flooding. 

 

Our fields, concession stand and equipment shed will be under water for about two months.  Once we are allowed onto our fields, we will have to replace mostly everything due to rust and mold concerns.  To help with relief efforts to restore our fields, equipment and miscellaneous items, a GoFundMe campaign has been started by West Oaks Little League Board Members.

 

The items to be replaced include the following:

  • Uniforms
  • Baseballs
  • Catcher’s gear
  • Gloves
  • Helmets
  • Pitching machines
  • Equipment bags
  • First aid kits
  • Lawn equipment
  • Scoreboard equipment
  • Bases
  • A. System
  • Concession stand items
    • Refrigerators
    • Freezers
    • Microwaves
    • Food
    • Hot dog grill
    • Deep fryer
    • Ice machine

 

 

We will start replacing the most important equipment first in order to get the fall season started.  We want to thank Katy National for letting us use their fields to finish out this season.

 

With our GoFundMe campaign, we are asking everyone to donate as much as they can to help with relief efforts.  The great thing about a GoFundMe campaign, we can share it with our family and friends on social media.

 

Below is the URL for our GoFundMe campaign.  Please share it through social media, e-mail and text message to your family, friends and surrounding communities. 

 

All donations given will receive a tax deduction form through e-mail.  Thank you all for your patience, concerns and cooperation.  We do this all for the children of West Oaks Little League.

 

Thank you,

 

West Oaks Little League Board
