Wheeling Rage 9U Baseball team in partnership with local business sponsors hit a homerun in the hearts of charities right here in our own community.

The team prepared food baskets with blankets delivered them to the soup pantry, provided dog food for the animal shelter, shoveled snow for the elderly, and wrote letters expressing their gratitude to Veterans.

According to Zach Hanson, Head Coach “My coaching staff and I want our team to expand their worldview, develop empathy and leadership skills, and realize how their actions can have a positive impact on others. We want these boys to understand that giving back is not only the right thing to do, but helping our community is investing in their self-worth and their future.”

Team Members include: Head Coach Zach Hanson, Assistant Coaches: Keith Bell, Justin Updegraff, and Bryan Fato. Players: Luca Benson, Owen Abraham, Rowen Parker, Zach Hanson, Dominic Fato, Maxx Taylor, Jaxson Updegraff, Seth Mandel, Sam Shinn, Isaac Tiu, and Jackson Bell.
