Over the weekend, I caught up with Coach Baker who had called me to let me know he another donation for G4G. The St. John’s baseball players donated some of their gently used equipment to Gloves for Good, including 10 helmets, 7 hats, and a glove. The St. John’s Mavericks continue to be great supporters of G4G and we hope the players will continue to donate.
Coach Baker is a graduate of Texas Southern University, is the Head Coach of the Junior Varsity Baseball team and the Assistant Coach for the Varsity team. He also coaches football and basketball.
I used to play baseball and football for Coach Baker - he was one of my favorite coaches - we won a lot (Jr SPC Champions!) and had a lot of fun. I included a picture of myself and my friends when I was a young Maverick in Middle School.
