The Silver Storm Baseball team begins their season this weekend in Fort Myers. Before striking opponents out and swinging for the fences members of the Storm’s Baseball program came together to join a great cause in our community. Wednesday night they partnered up with “Feed My Starving Children” foundation in preparing over 340,000 meals for underprivileged children around the world.
The Storm joined 350 other members of the community at the Miami Dade Youth Fair Expo Wednesday night. Head Baseball coach Jonathan Hernandez along with the rest of the Baseball staff were in attendance as well. “It’s truly an honor to partner with a foundation like this.” Coach Hernandez added. “We are very happy to take part in something that will help feed so many children around the world.”
The Baseball staff also felt that an event like this would definitely help boost the morale and bond that the team already possesses. The Silver Storm Baseball team will participate in other events around the community both during and after their season. Coach Hernandez wants to teach his players the importance of winning both on and off the field. There is no doubt it takes a special individual to call themselves a Silver Stormer!
