    Two Bay Area high school students have hit home runs, stepping up to the plate to give back to their community.

    Dawson Mann and Nick Walker, who attend Monte Vista High School in Danville, started an equipment drive last year to share their love of baseball with underprivileged youth.

    The two students collected about $4,000 worth of items, which they delivered Wednesday to the Concord Junior Giants baseball team.

    "It's really a great experience," Walker said. "We did it to teach leadership off the field, not just on it."

    About a half-dozen teams from the Concord league will receive the equipment, which includes a pair of Stephen Curry's Under Armour shoes.
