After playing teams that were clearly talented athletically, but did not have the proper gear, we co-founded the Double Play ATL Organization( Double Play for short) to help kids who want to play but lack the gear. Since 2017, in partnership with over 45 organizations. we have donated an over an estimated $100,000 worth of gear to our local community, nationally, and internationally. In 2020, Double Play ATL started a needs-based scholarship at our home recreation league, NYO. In 2021, James founded Triple Play Financial Literacy in partnership with Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. In 2022, James created a NYO Gear Borrow Dugout in partnership with The Glenn Institute by leading a team of 11 kids and adults. In 2023, James spearheaded the first NYO fundraiser for AEDs as well as helped assess all NYO defibrillators (8 checked, 3 repaired) inspired by the collapse of NFL player Damar Hamlin in early January 2023. This was part of the the first Westminster Janterm ( experiential learning quarter) internship for Double and Triple Play at NYO. In addition, a gear collection and financial literacy seminar were hosted for underserved communities. As result of Double Play's new merger with NYO, we hope to continue this Janterm partnership and continue to have impact in the years to come in leveling the playing field! Thank you again to our community and partnerships that make this possible!
