The Sayulita Jiabos Baseball team in Mexico donned only mixed old t-shirts in 2017.
Roger Tierney, who is now the team manager, started teaching local children how to play baseball at the Manuel Rodriguez Sanchez Stadium. Word spread and the number of locals who wanted to play grew. However, Tierney recognized the lack of equipment quickly, only having six gloves, one bat and six battered baseballs.
Eventually, the team would grow to the size of 75. The need for gear became a service opportunity for organizations. Since starting, the Sayulita-based team has received over 1,200 pounds of gear, 1,000 baseballs and a pitching machine.
Among these contributions, #PROLOOKGIVESBACK sent the team custom uniforms. When they received the uniforms, their season was postponed due to COVID-19. The coaches didn’t even open the box, wanting to save them for the next season.
When the spring 2020 season arrived, the kids were screaming and crying while opening the uniforms.
“They seriously won’t take the uniforms off,” coach Pedro Navarro said. “They wear them day in, day out!”
At PROLOOK, we strive to provide teams with uniforms and apparel that they will love and to help them continue living their game!
