Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Members of the Syracuse Chiefs marked their 46th year of visiting pediatric patients with a visit to Golisano Children’s Hospital on Monday.
The team talked baseball with the children and signed autographs.
The children seemed to really enjoy hanging with the team and the players say that feeling goes both ways.
"It's incredible to be here, to be with the kids, just to take a little bit of time out of our day and hopefully we can make theirs a little bit better. At least forget maybe a little bit where they’re at and have some fun and interact with us. It really means a lot for us to be able to come here and let the Chiefs give us this opportunity to be able to be here, it’s a big deal for us,” said Chiefs pitcher Ryan Tatusko.
The players say they learned some valuable lessons on Monday, both on and off the field.
