Dallas Baptist Baseball Works with Habitat for Humanity

FROM CBB NEWS SOURCE

The DBU Baseball Program has taken an active role in supporting the University’s mission of developing servant leaders through participation in numerous volunteer and service projects throughout the Dallas/ Ft Worth community. The players and coaches have served the community by volunteering at the Special Olympics of Texas State Track and Field Meet, helping with Habitat for Humanity and by reaching out to children in the Dallas area as they partnered with “Our Hands His Love” to put on a free baseball clinic.

Most recently, the players had the opportunity to spend a day helping Habitat for Humanity construct a house in Ft. Worth after returning from Christmas vacation. The players were able to complete a great deal of work on the exterior of the house, including grading around the house, putting up siding, flashing, Tyvek paper, doors and the front porch.

Coach Heefner commented on the team’s desire to continue to serve when he said, “We consider it a great privilege to play a part in the university’s mission of developing servant leaders by serving in our surrounding community. It is something we will continue to do on a consistent basis. We are extremely blessed and it is easy to lose perspective as college athletes. Every time we serve, we have the opportunity to grow in humility as we put others needs ahead of our own. Growing in humility through serving others is one of the greatest lessons we want our players to learn as they go through our program.”
