Dunwoody Senior Baseball Diablos baseball club help Toys for Tots
The Dunwoody Senior Baseball Diablos baseball club hosted a Toys for Tots drive at the home of Michelle Kovitch. The idea was that so many of these boys have the great privilege to play in a terrific program through Dunwoody Senior Baseball at Dunwoody Park. They and their families wanted to find a way to give back at this important time of year. The 1st annual drive was a strong success with over 100 unwrapped toys donated.
The Diablos program consists of five travel teams made up of 13U, 14U and 15U players from the area including Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and Brookhaven and whose coaching staff includes former Dunwoody H.S. coach Tom Bass.
The event included Sgt. Calvin Johnson representing the United States Marine Corps. He shared words of encouragement with the boys including the importance of education, following their dreams and giving back to their communities.
