The Brooklyn Tigers, a little league team made of girls and boys in Brooklyn, need major support, parents said.

Their practice keeps the kids off the streets but they don't have the equipment they need to play.

"Some of the parents don't come, and some of the kids don't have anything. They don't have it. It breaks your heart," said Sonia Rivera, a mom of one of the players.

The Brooklyn Tigers have four teams of 16 kids each, between the ages of 9 and 16. The kids come from all over Brooklyn and the teams are completely funded by their parents.

They don't have the money for new equipment, so they reached out to PIX11 News.

"I would like some equipment bat and some new cleats. They don't fit me no more and maybe a new helmet," said 10 -year-old Joseph Martinez, one of their pitchers.

The fall season has just begun and we can't let these little players down.
