BALTIMORE — One of the oldest little league organizations in the country isn't in despair over the lack of baseball.

Instead, they're putting their field to good use helping feed the community.

Instead of hitting home runs, James Mosher Baseball hit it out of the park with food for those in need. The group partnered with the Soul Harvest Church for the handout.

"No matter what condition people are in, we are there to serve them. So what we've done is to set up different partnerships not just with this organization but with different organizations around the city to ensure that people who are in need, and people who are in direct communication with folk that are in the community can reach out to us and we come in and provide the services that they need."

James Mosher Baseball canceled their season at the end of March.

Starting in 1960, it's believed to be one of the longest operating African American youth leagues in the U.S.
