On Tuesday morning, fifth grade students of the school took around the Tribe's coaching staff and 18 members of the team to different classrooms. Each Tribe player read to a class and answered students' questions for more than two hours.
Tribe head coach Frank Leoni
said of the trip to New Kent, "We always look forward to the New Kent Reading Day. I cannot thank the school's administration, in particular principal John Moncrief and school librarian Michelle Prough, for allowing us to share in such a wonderful event. It's an opportunity for our team to connect with the children on a different level and on their turf. It's simply great to see so many smiles. We truly get as much out of the event as the school children."
The Tribe's participation in the New Kent Elementary's Reading month marks the second consecutive year that the W&M baseball team has participated in the event. The baseball team already has plans to return to the school next year and read to the students again.
