Kirk Herbstreit pledges nearly $4K in donation to Indiana Little League team to replace stolen equipment
It can be hard to find positive news in the world of college sports these days. However, prominent college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit is making headlines for the right reasons today.
Kyle Cox, the coach of the Ben Davis Little League in Indiana, tweeted out a statement saying that his league was robbed of thousands of dollars worth of equipment recently. He included a link to the league’s GoFundMe, hoping to raise around $5,000 to replace the equipment that was stolen.
Our little league was robbed of thousands of dollars worth of equipment last night. Please help me as I try to raise $5,000 to replace all the stolen equipment. This place serves hundreds of kids in our community each year and I’d appreciate any/all help.https://t.co/GlP5IlikpG
