A University Baseball Team Steps Up For Tornado Victims

One player called it “the most humbling experience of [his] life.”

1. The West Virginia University men’s baseball team was in Oklahoma this week for the Big 12 championship and was staying miles from Moore, where the tornado struck.


Coach Randy Mazey

Our team is safe from tornado, missed us by 5-10 miles. Trying to get team to Moore, OK to help. Wouldn’t let us in today, families first.

2. The team decided to try and help victims by purchasing clothing and supplies for victims.
