Home Run Heroes schedules fifth annual collection drive for baseball gear on Oct. 4 at Lincoln High

LINCOLN - Home Run Heroes will be holding its 5th annual collection drive for new and lightly used baseball gear on Saturday, Oct. 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the main entrance to Lincoln High School.

Home Run Heroes was started by Lincoln High graduate Steve McManus four years ago and taken over by Lincoln High sophomore Derek Degnan last year. The program works in conjunction with Roberto's Kids, which collects and distributes baseball gear to children in all parts of the world.

Last year, Degnan collected and delivered more than 700 pounds of gear for distribution to the Caribbean, Central, and South America, as well as Africa.

All usable gear is accepted, as well as baseball shirts, pants, and caps.
