Oakland A's provide uniforms to 5,000 Bay Area Little Leaguers

More than 5,000 youth baseball and softball players received Oakland A's jerseys and baseball caps for the upcoming Little League season today at the Oakland Coliseum, courtesy of the Oakland A's Community Fund, Black Bear Diner and a posthumous donation from longtime A's season ticket holder Elizabeth Ruchenski. 
 
The Oakland A's Youth Uniform Program, presented by Black Bear Diner, benefits deserving Bay Area youth leagues, including Oakland Cal Ripken - Babe Ruth Baseball and teams from Alameda, Hayward, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Tennyson, and Richmond Little Leagues. Eighteen leagues and more than 350 teams received a variety of A's uniform styles, allowing participants to grow up and play baseball in A's Green and Gold.
