Community HAPpenings: Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

The crack of a baseball getting smacked out of the park, the smell of freshly mowed grass, the dust-stained uniforms that were white once upon a time, the peanuts and crackerjacks- yes, folks, it’s spring, and that means it’s time for baseball! 

Boys Baseball of Aurora

 

At Home Access Products, we take pride in being part of our community and helping local organizations achieve their goals. That’s why we decided to sponsor a local Little League organization. Home Access Products is proud to announce that we are now a league sponsor for the Boys Baseball of Aurora Organization.  Rather than limiting our sponsorship to one team, we decided that we wanted to have a broader reach and impact on the whole organization.

This year, Boys Baseball of Aurora is entering its 60th year as a community based, non- profit organization.  They are dedicated to providing a youth baseball program for the boys of Aurora and the surrounding communities that stresses the development of fundamentals, the importance of teamwork, the life lessons of sportsmanship, and above all, having fun playing age-level competitive baseball.

With the support of HAP and other businesses and organizations, as many as 700 boys, ages 7-12, play on 52 teams in three leagues.  Each team plays 18-22 games during the course of the schedule.  Over 225 volunteers serve as managers, coaches and scorekeepers.

We felt that BBA’s values and ethics were in line with how we operate our business at HAP. In baseball, if you have the right equipment, support, and teamwork, you can accomplish many things. At HAP, we strive to help others by providing the right equipment, the best support, stellar customer service, and working together as a team to make independence a possibility and quality of life a major accomplishment. All things considered, it made it easy for us to get on board and support them in a big way.

We also believe that our pledge to help seniors age at home comfortably goes hand-in-hand with helping seniors enjoy the simple pleasure of watching a grandchild or beloved neighbor play in America’s greatest pastime. There is nothing more enjoyable than being able to sit down and watch a Little League game. The sun is shining, people are cheering and laughing, and you look back and realize that you were able to do all of this either on your own or with limited help. HAP provides everything from walkers to bathtub lifts, stair lifts to wheelchair ramps, and scooters to power wheelchairs. This means that you can do the things that you love and begin to start enjoying life again. You never have to miss that opportunity to catch a home run ball!

At Home Access Products, we want to help you by hitting a home run ourselves- in terms of our expansive product knowledge, our stellar customer service, and above all, our empathy for your desire to age at home. Contact us today to find out how we can help you continue to age comfortably in your own home, and together, we can hit it out of the ballpark!
