Baseball Team IMPACT Day
On April 27th the UMASS Baseball Team and athletic staff members took part in a very important inaugural event as they brought together families and children of Team IMPACT for a day at the ball park. Although eight families and children came out to take part in the celebration the special guest for the day was Jake Parker who is a honorary member of our baseball team. Jake had the opportunity to announce “Play Ball” to start the game and introduce the players as they came up to bat. This was the first of many Team IMPACT events we hope to have in the future. Thank you to Coach Eygabroat and his players.
