WHAT DO WE DO?
In hopes of growing the sport of baseball in African countries, Angels at Bat collects equipment and distributes it to teams throughout Africa.
WHY DO WE DO IT?
In Jan 2012, Green Bay's baseball community lost a beloved coach in Coach Williquette. In his honor, #20 is written on each donation and a halo is placed over the "T" in our logo.
Angels at Bat is a registered 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to supply baseball equipment to communities throughout the African continent. The game of baseball teaches players a variety of life skills and lessons that enable them to become more well-rounded individuals. We hope our distribution of "set-aside" equipment, along with our training efforts, encourage African players to pursue baseball.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
If you are interested in donating your new or lightly used baseball equipment, send us a message to coordinate the donation. We accept all types of equipment from hats to bats, gloves to jerseys, balls to training equipment. We simply ask that the equipment you donate be in good enough shape to use as intended. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Angels at Bat relies on the financial support of its donors to distribute equipment, offer training opportunities, as well as create & establish competitions for African teams. Donations can be made easily via PayPal and Venmo (@angelsatbat). For more information on ways to financially support Angels at Bat, see below.

We often wonder how baseball is growing in Africa when we are not there to witness it. We see lots of pictures of children using the equipment we have but we also wonder if they enjoy the sport. In response to this, we put together this video...
