Helping Kids – One Mitt at a Time!
Each year, regional teams of Masonic lodges compete to purchase high-quality leather baseball mitts for children who participate in charitable baseball programs. Now in its ninth season, California Masons have raised more than $826,000 – 41,302 plus mitts!
The charitable baseball programs offered through the Major League Baseball teams provide sports instruction, a safe place to play, help developing teamwork skills, and guidance on health, nutrition, study skills, and more.
Bro. James Segerstrom of Orange Grove Lodge No. 293 was instrumental in bringing Masons4Mitts to Orange County. “Having grown up playing baseball, I know how important it is to have your own glove,” Segerstrom says. “For these kids, it makes all the difference in the world. And the fact that the gloves have a square and compass – it shows the kids that Masons care about our communities.”
