Carmel Valley dentist replaces Del Mar National Little League’s stolen equipment

By Kristina Houck

A week after two pitching machines were stolen from the Del Mar National Little League, Carmel Valley-based The Super Dentists has stepped up to purchase new equipment for the nonprofit.

“We are truly grateful for the generous donation,” said Jeffrey Bernstein, president of the Del Mar National Little League. “They stepped in to save the day!”

The equipment was reportedly stolen around May 1 from a shed at Sage Canyon School in Carmel Valley. Valued at $1,000 each, the machines are mainly used for the league’s Machine Pitch division, which includes boys 7-9 years old. The machines are also used during player evaluations in January.

“They’re used every day for practice during the week and on Saturday for games,” Bernstein said. “It was very disheartening to see this happen. It’s never happened before, especially in our community.”

In 2013, the Del Mar Little League split into two new leagues. The Del Mar National Little League serves about 350 children in Carmel Valley, south of State Route 56. The Del Mar American Little League serves Del Mar and Carmel Valley, north of SR-56.

The Del Mar National Little League filed an online police report May 2. During the last week, the league had to borrow one of Del Mar American Little League’s pitching machines.

To commemorate The Super Dentists’ donation, representatives from the company will throw a ceremonial first pitch during the Machine Pitch game on May 17. The game starts at 9:30 a.m. at Sage Canyon Small Field West.
