In North Camden, a town right outside of Philadelphia, youth baseball is more than just a fun way to get kids outside. For the North Camden Youth Baseball league, it's a way to add structure into the summer for local kids and to give them a safe activity. On Tuesday, Bryce Harper gave them a surprise of a lifetime when they thought it was just going to be another day.
Bryce surprised one of the league's who thought they were just going to a local DICK’s Sporting Goods store for batting practice and instead, gave them a shopping spree that included his newest signature cleat, the UA Harper 4. The team was then invited by Bryce to attend the Phillies game that night to take on the Cubs from the comfort of a suite at Citizen’s Bank Park.
In addition to the appearance and shopping spree, Under Armour and DICK’S Sporting Goods surprised the North Camden Youth Baseball league with a $10,000 donation so the kids can continue to have a safe, fun, and affordable season.
