CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Councilman Zack Reed joined Cleveland Police Saturday to donate baseball equipment to a little league program.
Councilman Reed and Captain Keith Sulzer gathered Saturday, April 16, outside Dave's Supermarket in the Lee-Harvard Shopping Center.
Players and coaches from the B-Buzz Little League teams received equipment, which included bats, balls, mitts and batters' helmets.
The equipment was donated by the Police Athletic League and the Cleveland Police Foundation.
As a child Councilman Reed grew up in the Mount Pleasant area and played in the B-Buzz League in the Lee-Harvard neighborhood.
"Little league baseball taught me discipline and teamwork, which are very important skills for growing up," said Councilman Reed. "As an adult and a public official, I continue to use those skills."
The B-Buzz League got its name because it was established by a beekeeper in the Lee-Harvard community back in the 1950s.
