PAL Youngsters Hit it Out of the Park with Walmart
Hundreds of PAL youngsters spent the summer hitting homers and running the bases through the Walmart Baseball Program. Teams from PAL centers across Philadelphia participated in two citywide leagues: 12-and-Under and 14-and-Under, and two in-house leagues at Harrowgate and Gibbons PAL centers. The leagues each hosted hundreds of players. Volunteer coaches taught the basics of the game to beginners and helped more advanced players hone their skills.
Walmart has been a proud sponsor of the PAL Baseball Program for many years, helping youngsters learn the value of teamwork, dedication and good sportsmanship while remaining active during the summer months. Ford PAL’s 12-and -Under team was victorious after a tough match-up against Harrowgate PAL. Lighthouse PAL won the 14-and-Under league for the second year in a row, defeating stiff competition from Wissinoming PAL. Players and coaches enjoyed lunch after the games to celebrate their accomplishments.
PAL thanks Walmart for another successful season and commends all participants for their commitment to practices and games this summer!
