FROM CBB NEWS SOURCE

DukeVolunteer DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke baseball team wrapped up a fall semester of community service work with four projects in the Durham community on Saturday, Dec. 5.

All four classes ventured out to various spots in the Triangle to take on projects that they each planned. In all, the team volunteered at the Duke Children’s Hospital, the Urban Ministries of Durham Soup Kitchen, Girls on the Run and the Central Regional Hospital.

"It is a credit to our players how much the community service component of the Duke Baseball program has grown each year," said head coach Sean McNally, now in his fifth year at Duke. "I think our guys are aware of the influence that they have on children when they go on these visits and have embraced the opportunity to make a positive impact in the Durham area. The initiative that each class took to organize four separate projects taking place on the same day prior to heading home for the holidays speaks volumes for our commitment in the community.  I am proud of our players for their efforts."
