How Can I support League 42™?
In-kind donations of goods and services, as well as donations of time and equipment, are vital to the League’s success.
League 42 is a non-profit organization, so we rely on our volunteers and donors to make each baseball season happen. We currently need volunteers to help us administrate the league, be team ambassadors who help our coaches, and to be involved with uniforms, special events, and fund-raising activities. If you’d like to volunteer for League 42, contact email@example.com or (316) 655-1028.
We need to raise in the neighborhood of $125,000 per year just to cover the costs of our equipment, umpires, and field maintenance. We also do many other things with our players, such as an annual trip to Kansas City to watch the Royals for our older kids, ages 12, 13, and 14.
Some of our large fundraisers include an annual golf tournament in conjunction with the Wichita State Baseball Alumni Organization that is held in October at Sand Creek Station in Newton. We also have a radiothon that we hold on KFH every October, a three-hour block of time in which we take donations over the telephone.
You can also donate directly via by clicking on this link (League 42 Donations) or the picture below.
Equipment: We accept donations of equipment year-round. Our greatest need is youth baseball gloves, new or gently used. Any donations can be dropped off at McAdams Park Recreation Center or by calling 316-440-4542 and we’ll make arrangements to come to pick them up at your location.

From coaches and assistants to parent team ambassadors to fundraising and planning committees, on and off the field events; whether you have an hour a month or 20 hours a week, we have a multitude of volunteer positions that will fit into your schedule. We have a general meeting that’s open to the public on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 6 PM.
