Chillicothe OH -- We were truly blessed that our players had the opportunity to spend some time at the Chillicothe VA Hospital this past Saturday (December 14, 2019) for the annual Army/Navy game. A big thank you to Matt Cox for setting this up and allowing us to spend time with some Veterans while watching the Army Black Knights square off with the Navy Midshipmen.

We want to thank our parents, players and coaches who participated. We're very proud of the boys as they displayed compassion, courage and patience because you could tell the Veterans enjoy talking and watching the game with the kids. I'm not sure how many Veterans thanked us for being there but it was our honor to be part of it!

A few special thank yous to:
* Mrs. Sada Wright (along with Coach Seth, Cole and of course Katie) for making the Christmas candy sleighs which was a big hit with everyone!
* Miss Kimmy and Coach Barker for winning the Chili Cookoff for the 2nd year straight.....the lines were crazy for a little while for Kimmy's chili!! The Veterans really enjoyed it and it was obvious pretty early on that Kimmy was gonna defend her title! Also, thank you to both Coach Barker and Kimmy for bringing extra drinks for the Veteran's and the baseball folks.

This was truly and great experience for everyone and we hope we are fortunate enough to participate again next year!

Happy Holidays and God Bless Our Veterans!
