NAIA-BCA to Aid Oklahoma Tornado Victims

June 06, 2013
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Baseball Coaches Association (NAIA-BCA) needs assistance in helping the players and teams of the Moore Youth Baseball Association (MYBA), victims of the recent Oklahoma tornadoes, by collecting baseball equipment to be donated to the league.

“Our thoughts continue to rest with the people of Oklahoma as they continue to rebuild,” said NAIA-BCA President and Fisher College (Mass.) head coach Scott Dulin. “Providing baseball equipment will allow the kids and league (MYBA) to regain a piece of normalcy in a time of trouble. Any assistance is helpful.”

The NAIA-BCA plans to send gloves, bats, bags, balls and other equipment to the MYBA in order to help the association’s nearly 150 teams in a small piece of the rebuilding effort.

The Moore Youth Baseball Association is a non-profit baseball league, whose purpose is to provide a safe environment for the youth of the Moore, Okla., community. It also places a strong emphasis on the development of character and sportsmanship. The association currently works with children ranging from ages 4-14.

Donations to the cause can be sent to Oklahoma City University head baseball coach Denney Crabaugh at the following address:
