Ball Parks 4 Him is a 501(c)(3) not for profit charitable foundation in memory of Zachary Siegfried . Our goal is to assist in the financial needs of children ranging in age from 5-18 who have a desire to play sports and have a financial hardship. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to play sports no matter the ability to pay. Ball Parks 4 Him was founded in October 2010. In the first year we assisted 5 children with their sports financial needs that included getting a 9 year old boy a prosthetic baseball glove made, so he could play baseball with two hands instead on one, and we assisted a 12 year old girl with fees associated with playing on a girls USA softball team in Germany in August 2011.
The second year we averaged assisting 5 children a month and now in 2013 we are averaging 30 applications a month. We have been blessed by generous donation that we have been able to assist every child that has qualified.
Recently, Ball Parks 4 Him was awarded a $500 PNC Sponsorship to buy 50 pairs of shoes for local children. Once people heard that we are buying shoes for children in need they started donating to the cause. So far to date we have raised $1,350. to buy shoes for children in need. We have bought and delivered over 125 pairs of shoes this far and we are not finished yet.

.Ball Parks 4 Him believes in the children/youth and wanted to do something to make a difference in their lives. We believe in people’s ability to reach the next level, in people’s ability to push themselves beyond what is expected.
We believe that desire, commitment, hard work and intensity combined with quality sport specific training can ultimately bridge the gap between potential and true performance. It is our primary goal to assist individual children in becoming better athletes by helping them with their financial needs. Finally, we believe that athletics can help every young child to become a better person by providing them with important life skills and tools that they will find necessary in fulfilling their future dreams and goals.
