My name is Spencer Dicken and from the minute I was born I was a baseball kid. My first word was “ball” and I have been playing the game since the age of 4. I have played Little League, Travel Ball and now High School Varsity baseball. I read an article about how many kids could not participate in sports because they didn’t have the necessary equipment and I wanted to do something to make a difference.
San Diego is a big military town and I am grateful for all the sacrifices these families make to keep us safe. The goal of Bats4Boys is to make sure every kid has the equipment they need to hit it out of the park. I have partnered with the Randy Jones Foundation and every bat donated will be given to a young baseball player in their program who otherwise might miss out on playing because one or both parents have been deployed, stationed abroad, or have given their lives serving our country.
I know that every bat has a story. I will never forget my first bat. It was bright orange and I named it “Cheddar”. I have lots of stories about that bat including my very first home run. When you donate your bat, please write a note of encouragement to the player who will be receiving it. I’m sure they will love the story behind the bat and appreciate your support.
Please book a time for me to come to pick up your bat from your home, your team’s practice, or a tournament.
Thank you for your support! Together we can make sure every kid hits the field with the equipment they need.
