St. Elizabeth Healthcare & Reds Community Fund donate $22K of athletic equipment to 11 NKY Schools


Twenty-two baseball and softball teams from 11 Northern Kentucky high schools received $22,500 worth of baseball and softball equipment earlier today at the Griffin Elite Sports and Wellness complex, thanks to St. Elizabeth Healthcare and the Cincinnati Reds.

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.


Athletic directors, head coaches and student-athletes from each school attended the event to receive the equipment.


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.
