Baseball players from McMillen and Williams high schools and Plano East Senior High visited the Plano Police Department and the Murphy Police Department on Sunday, October 22. Players took the police officers treats and thanked them for their service to the community.
“Our players are not just fine athletes,” said Plano East Head Baseball Coach Jordan Byrd, “they’re outstanding young men who really care about their community. They are currently serving at area elementary schools by opening car doors for elementary students in the morning, reading to kindergarten and first graders, and helping teachers in classrooms. They recently helped unload pumpkins at Murphy Road Baptist Church and helped set up their pumpkin patch. Our baseball program is about more than making players faster and stronger. We’re shaping honorable men, responsible citizens and future community leaders.”
On Thursday, November 16th from 11 a.m. until midnight, Buffalo Wild Wings at 3625 Central Expressway in Plano will host a fundraiser for Plano East Baseball, donating 10-percent of proceeds to the program. To receive a flyer with details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
