Texas Tech baseball players visit High Point Village

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Texas Tech baseball has been staying busy in the off-season. The team volunteered at High Point Village, a non-profit that provides a living community for those with special needs. 

"I'm loving it. This is a great experience and I am glad that we got to come out here," left fielder Kurt Wilson said. 

"Events like these do have an impact and people really care about what we do and how we spend our time. We are athletes for the university, but we are also athletes for the community," pitcher John McMillon said. 

The time spent between the Red Raiders and this community was a give-and-take experience. 

"We love our villagers so much but to see the community come out and get a taste of what we get to do every single day is just the best," High Point volunteer Katie Crump said. 

McMillon said this helps brighten the future of the program. 

"From the aspect of translating to the field, this can really be unifying for the team and bring everyone together."

Texas Tech opens the season in February.
