New Uniforms for Denver Parks and Recreation League Ballplayers!

A celebration was held Saturday morning to highlight the innovative public-private partnership between Jeep, CBS EcoMedia and Denver Parks and Recreation that provided funding to purchase new uniforms for Denver’s Youth Sports baseball programs. The funding came through Jeep’s WellnessAd advertising to ensure that every player in the baseball team sports program has a new uniform. With the infusion of new funding from Jeep, Denver Parks and Recreation has the ability to reinvest more funding into other youth programs during a critical time of year when schools are out of session. The new uniforms were distributed Saturday morning by enthusiastic Jeep representatives at a celebration for the funding at Jackie Robinson Fields. Denver Parks and Recreation also held a baseball clinic focusing on skills and fundamentals for the young pitchers, hitters and fielders.
