Keep Baseball Fun, a creative merchandise store and equipment review company, is partnering with leading anti-hunger organization Feed the Children to fight childhood hunger across the U.S. The joint campaign, called Punch Out Hunger, aims to provide families living below the poverty line with the important food and essentials needed for every day life. Through its online store, Keep Baseball Fun offers six unique Punch Out Hunger T-shirt and sweatshirt designs available for purchase during the campaign starting July 13 and continuing through Nov. 3. With each sale of the customized shirt, 50 percent will benefit Feed the Children.
Keep Baseball Fun was founded in 2020 by brothers Cooper, 15, and Parker Smith, 13. It was created to provide authentic baseball and fitness reviews to sports enthusiasts, as well as a way to give back to the boys’ youth sports community through the sale of their merchandise. During COVID-19, the brothers were struck with the reality that many kids like them may not have enough to eat causing them to possibly go to bed hungry. Food insecurity in households with children has doubled since the pandemic, growing from roughly 14 percent in 2018 to about 32 percent in July 2020. Cooper and Parker realized hunger cannot be fought alone and they could do something to help
Cooper and Parker explained, “Since we started Keep Baseball Fun we have always wanted to find a way to give back and help others. We are excited to have found Feed the Children and ask for your support to purchase a shirt in order to help us raise money for this great cause!”
Feed the Children is dedicated to ensuring children receive the food required for proper development. That’s why it partners with organizations like Keep Baseball Fun in communities across the U.S. and around the world with the mission of providing hope and resources to those without life’s essentials. Now, more than ever, it’s important for the nonprofit and private sectors, corporations and community organizations to come together and step up to the plate to help vulnerable communities.
“We are grateful for Keep Baseball Fun’s generosity and support of our mission,” said Travis Arnold, president and CEO, Feed the Children. “The need for food and other assistance has increased significantly due to COVID, and we are very thankful for our partnership with Cooper and Parker. We know that when we combine our efforts, we have a greater impact on the lives of our neighbors who need us most.”

About Keep Baseball Fun
Keep Baseball Fun was created during COVID-19 by two brothers, Cooper (15) and Parker (13) Smith. In an attempt to keep their skills sharp, stay active and simply pass the time, the boys ordered a variety of different baseball and fitness equipment…all online. Even though the manufactures they ordered from often made claims like “number one,” “best,” or “greatest” more times than not, what arrived was a disappointment. They also found the product reviews to be unreliable plus you never got to actually see the products in action. And that’s how the idea started….Reliable & Authentic Baseball and Fitness equipment video reviews. We donate a portion of the proceeds to Poway youth sports programs and Feed the Children.
