HOUSTON, TX - The Denver Harbor Football League had their first practice of the season on Monday, but the excitement of getting the year started quickly wore off, when families arrived to discover both their equipment lockers and concession stand had been broken into.

Both the youth baseball league and youth football league were robbed. Pitching machines, bats, balls, and sets of bases were stolen from the little league locker, while the football league lost $600 and additional equipment that was in the concession stand building, just a few steps away.

However, since the disappointing discovery on Monday, multiple organizations have stepped up to help out, including the Astros who were one of the first to respond, and the football league says Sports Authority will be making a big donation on Thursday to both sports leagues. Between those big donations and additional support on the leagues GoFundMe page, things are starting to look up.

A police report has been filed, but whether or not they catch the culprits, the community is trying to turn this tragedy into a home run.
