The Homewood Baseball Association in partnership with Homewood Community Sports and the Pittsburgh Pirates RBI program presented community day at Willie Stargell Field on June 25 to revive and further promote baseball in the inner city.

The kids got basic skills and tips from Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher James McDonald and they held T-Ball and Little League home run derbies.
