Dayton introduces "For the Good of Gloves"


Dayton head coach Tony Vittorio (left), in conjunction with The Building Bridges Program and SCORE International, has announced “For the Good of Gloves”, a program in which the Flyer baseball program will collect baseball gloves for those in need.


Vittorio got the idea from past trips to the Dominican Republic with SCORE International, a sports missionary organization. Baseball representatives from the United State brought gloves to give to kids who did not have gloves.


Vittorio also recognized that man kids at the local Hal McCoy Building Bridges Baseball Clinic did not have their own gloves.


The Dayton baseball team is going to collect used gloves from its players, after its camps and at other baseball venues to give to those who don’t have gloves, according to Vittorio. SCORE International and Building Bridges will distribute them at their baseball camps and clinics.


Former Kentucky head coach Keith Madison is the baseball representative for SCORE International and will assist with the distribution of the gloves.


The Dayton baseball team is also involved with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Christmas on Campus, and the Dayton Children’s Hospital.
