WVU Baseball Steps Up for Moore, Oklahoma

WVU Baseball at Walmart

The West Virginia baseball team was in Oklahoma City for the Big XII tournament, having narrowly missed the tornado that tore through the area on Monday. Their first impulse was to rush to Moore to help those that needed help, but were prevented from that by first responders who (understandably) wanted to keep the roads as open as possible for family and emergency personnel.

Instead, the Mounties' baseball team did the next best thing. The team went to Walmart to purchase as many supplies as they could on their credit cards before delivering them the next day.

"Class" can be overused in covering the world of sports to the point of losing any meaning, but we thank WVU's baseball team, under the direction of skipper Randy Mazey, for thinking of others in their time of need.

Nice story. Tip of the hat to you, WVU baseball.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

This totally makes up for their god-awful blue and yellow camouflage jerseys.

Thank god they are alright and that they are able to help those in need. I don't often say this of WVU sports (because we normally see their football team), but that is more than a class act. Their parents, professors, family, and friends must be proud.

Glad to see acts of generosity and kindness any time, and this is a class act.

Excellent fellas. Hope the NCAA does not look too close at this.

Great to see a good humanatarian effort and such great sportsmanship from the WVA baseball team.  Class acts all the way around! 
Good luck to Oklahoma City in the rebuilding process.  We all hope that life can get back to normal as soon as possible for all of you there!  God Bless.
