Baseball team members headed into the community to shovel snow for the elderly Tuesday, Feb. 26.

“Change of plan. Hitting at 10:30. Bring a shovel. Team building community service will follow practice. Any kind of shovel will do.” A tweet sent by head baseball coach John Doan resulted in team camaraderie that benefitted both a team and a community during the February blizzard.

In place of practicing, the varsity baseball team and coaches gathered together to clear snow filled driveways for citizens in the community. The team focused their efforts along the Creekmere block, working for two and a half hours.

“We mostly shoveled snow for the elderly but we asked anyone who needed their driveway cleared,” senior Grant Glaze said. “If we saw one that wasn’t clear, we would just clear it. They were all grateful.”

Through working together as a team to clear the snow, senior Jake Rogers said the community service allowed the team to come closer for a good cause.

“We want to be seen as a group of individuals that will give back to the community that has given us so much support throughout the years,” Rogers said.
