Mokena Baseball/Softball Association president Jason Zimmer feels youth sports organizations share a bond over a common goal of enriching children’s life through sports.

So, when Zimmer heard Belmont Little League in Joliet had thousands of dollars of equipment stolen from its storage shed with the new season right around the corner, he wanted to help.

He also knew the families in his organization - which has players from Frankfort, New Lenox, Orland Park and Tinley Park, in addition to Mokena - would be eager to pitch in.
