Baseball Works with Habitat for Humanity
MACON, Ga. – 12 members of the Mercer baseball team volunteered their time and effort to give back to the local community by working with Habitat for Humanity on Saturday afternoon in South Macon.
The players involved included senior Brandon Love, juniors David Teasley, Travis Benn, Logan Gaines, Kelcey Butts, Jamie McMillan and David Reid-Foley, sophomores Austin Barrett, DJ Johnson, Derrick Workman and Nick Backlund and freshmen Grayson Smith and Ben Lumsden.
This is the sixth year in a row that Mercer baseball has partnered up with Habitat for Humanity in the fall to help others in need throughout the Macon community.
The players helped work on two different houses on the day and were assigned multiple tasks including landscaping, ground leveling, adding vinal siding, exterior finishing and prep work for a French drainage system.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization building simple, decent, affordable housing in partnership with people in need throughout the United State and in dozens of other countries around the World.
The remaining players on the squad will come back to continue Mercer baseball’s involvement with Habitat on December 3.
