ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Summer time is a busy time for kids and sports, but some St. Louis area kids can`t afford the equipment it takes for some games.

So a St. Louis man is stepping up to the plate so little leaguers can step up to the plate.

FOX 2`s Dan Gray shows you how he's Paying It Forward.

Billy Mayhall wants to make sure that any kid who wants to play a sport is afforded that opportunity. He founded STL Youth Sports Outreach. Here`s what happened when good friend Carrie Bretz surprised him with the pay it forward five hundred dollar gift card from First Bank.

Mayhall is so used to giving; he was a bit emotional when he was on the receiving end.

The good community guy says his family and friends deserve the credit too.

Tonight's Pay It Forward is brought to you by First Bank. If you would like to nominate a deserving person for the award go to the Pay It Forward page.
