Edmond Santa Fe's Ty Hensley enjoys opportunity at Children's Center
Ty Hensley’s life is pretty busy these days. But the Edmond Santa Fe pitcher, who was recently drafted by the New York Yankees, also knows there are more important things than another workout session or more contract negotiations.
On Tuesday night, Hensley served as the honorary team captain for the Pirates, a T-ball team that participates in the Spirit League in Yukon, designed for children with disabilities.
The Pirates have five players who are patients at The Children’s Center in Bethany, where Hensley and his mother have been volunteers in the past. Hensley joined the team for their end-of-season celebration and trophy ceremony Tuesday night
“It’s really impressive that a New York Yankee like Ty would take the time to brighten the day of our patients at The Children’s Center,” said Travis Doussette, the communications coordinator at The Children’s Center.
Hensley appreciates such moments just as much.
“I started volunteering there in January,” he said. “My mom’s company went there one day and she told me about it. I thought it sounded like a pretty cool idea, so we got me signed up to volunteer there. It’s a really neat experience.”
