The Dell Rapids Baseball Association was able to make a donation of older, used baseball equipment to an organization that gives the equipment to kids in Nicaragua. The organization is called “Helping Kids Round First” and was founded by Craig Severtson of Flandreau. Jay Bentz, Dell Rapids PBR manager/player, is a board member of the organization. Other board members include Bill Nibbelink, Sam Gotham, Tim Huber, Brian Relf, and Gretta Melsted.
Every year the organization brings baseball and softball equipment and provides instruction to the youth in rural Nicaraguan communities.
The Dell Rapids Baseball Association was able to provide a small donation of used helmets, bats, equipment bags, hats, uniforms, and other items that will be given to the youth.
