Sal Romano, pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, joined representatives from St. Elizabeth, the Reds Community Fund and Pitch in For Baseball & Softball to distribute the equipment. Recipient schools included Bellevue, Boone County, Campbell County, Dayton, Dixie Heights, Grant County, Covington Holmes, Ludlow, Newport, Scott and Simon Kenton high schools.
Each school received a share of $22,500 worth of equipment. St. Elizabeth matched the contribution from the Reds Community Fund to help the 11 schools through Pitch In For Baseball & Softball.
Now in its third year, the partnership between St. Elizabeth, the Reds and Pitch In For Baseball & Softball is designed to help baseball and softball programs in Northern Kentucky prepare for the upcoming season.
