JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Normally, the space between the left and right field foul lines is where the Mississippi Braves feel right at home.
On Friday, the entire team felt pretty comfortable at the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children.
The MBraves stopped by to play with some of the kids and also sign autographs and take pictures.
"It means a lot to us. I can't put to words what they go through, day in and day out. For us to come out here and put a smile on their face, means a lot," said outfielder Willie Cabrera.
"Just come in and have fun with them. I know it means a lot to them and signing some stuff for them and to give them some souvenirs and stuff like that. It means a lot to us and to them," said infielder Jordan Kreke.
Some of the players were having just as much fun as the children.
It's a memory the kids will keep with them forever, while the MBraves enjoy just reaching out.
"Every time we can come out and just give positive energy and positive reinforcement with kids that are not as privileged or things like that, it means a lot for us to just be a part of the community, because they give so much to us," said Cabrera.
A chance to brighten a child's day was a pure pleasure for the team. and a responsibility of giving back.
"It means a lot for us to come in here and just make some kids day. You have to know how to work with the community and always give back to the community and stuff like that so it's definitely a responsibility that we need to have," said Kreke.
