What a gesture as Nick Castellanos gifts custom bats to the Media, PA Little League World Series Team
While the Media, PA Little League's team run to the World Series came to a disappointing end, Nick Castellanos of the Philadelphia Phillies made it all worth while with a special gift of custom-made bats from Chandler Bats, an American manufacturing company based in Port St. Lucie, FL.
The Phillies and Nationals played as part of the 2023 MLB Little League Classic
For those looking for more information on the annual event, take a look below at a brief description of the festivities from the first edition that took place in 2017.
“The inaugural MLB Little League Classic launched successfully in 2017 with Major Leaguers from the Pittsburgh Pirates & St. Louis Cardinals spending time with Little Leaguers in a full, fun day-long celebration of baseball. Upon arrival in Williamsport, players from the teams took in the sights, sounds and action of the Little League World Series. That evening, they were able to demonstrate their skills and inspire the attentive Little Leaguers at Bowman Field. There was a winner for each MLB game, but what mattered most that entire day is that a bond was formed between all those who participated – no better evidence than the handshake line that the Major Leaguers formed following each of the contests.”
