The Black Keys are giving back to their hometown, Akron, Ohio by sponsoring a West Akron Baseball League. The Grammy Award-winning rock duo are designing team jerseys.
“The Black Keys have actually sponsored a basketball team in the past, so I reached out to Pat Carney, the drummer, and asked if he would sponsor a baseball team because I always remember him playing baseball as a little kid,” said Steve Milkovich, Vice President of T-Ball. “A very enthusiastic yes, he was excited to do it. There was no hesitation.”
Shirts are for sale to the public, 100% of donations will be used to improve the local baseball field, update equipment, and help regulate the registration fees.
