BRADFORD, Pa. – All members of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford baseball program as well as athletes from the wrestling team volunteered at the annual Sno-Ball Dance at the Bradford Nursing Pavilion on Saturday, Feb. 17.
"The guys did an awesome job at this event," Head Baseball Coach Zach Foster said. "This is the type of event that makes them realize that there is more to life than just baseball. They got a chance to get out into the community and talk with the residents of the Pavilion, who are from Bradford and love the town and what it has to offer. It was great to see that the guys are retaining that sense of respect and integrity we are trying to teach them here."
The Pitt-Bradford student-athletes danced with the residents and helped pass out cupcakes and drinks.
Foster also believes the conversations held between the athletes and the residents were equally as rewarding.
The Pavilion at Bradford Regional Medical Center specializes in skilled nursing care for residents requiring short-term rehabilitation for a medical recovery, surgical recovery or long-term care for dementia or Alzheimer's Disease.
