The St. Thomas Aquinas College Baseball Team made a big impact on opening day of the Touching Bases Fall 2017 Season. A baseball league for adults with mild to severe disabilities, Touching Bases of Rockland County has partnered with the Spartans over the last several seasons, to help enhance the lives of those in our community who love the game of baseball, but need additional assistance on the field.
All members of the 2017 STAC squad were involved; from returners, to recruited freshmen and transfers, to walk-ons and those hoping to make the squad via tryout. The players helped park cars, sell apparel and food, and most importantly help participants hit, throw, catch and run. In all, 55 Spartan athletes served over 200 participants during 7 games. This is week one of a 10-week season.
Joining the Touching Bases participants and the Spartans on opening day were: Bob Baird, Executive Director and Founder of Touching Bases, along with Ed Day, Rockland County Executive.
