Dayton introduces "For the Good
Dayton head coach Tony Vittorio

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.
