Teammates Take Care of Each Other

                                      

After recognizing Ben Sanders, 5th grade baseball player for St. Mark, for his Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS), we received a nice note saying Ben certainly was deserving.  That note pointed out something we did not know and asked us to consider the entire St. Mark 5th grade baseball team for a RAS.  In mid-June one of the St. Mark players, Brett Haubrich, was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  He spent quite a bit of time in the hospital having brain surgery, biopsy and recovering.  During that time, his team never failed to include him in their games.  They hung his jersey in the dugout every game he missed.  In mid-July, after a 10 day stay in Children's Hospital, Brett was released and was able to play in the last few playoff games.  He was excited to be able to rejoin the team, and the team was anxious to have him back on the bench, inside that jersey!  St. Mark ended up winning the Archdiocesan Championship, but just seeing Brett back on the field was the biggest victory.  So we want to expand the Random Act of Sportsmanship to include the whole St. Mark team, players and coaches.  What you have done for your teammate exceeds what you have done on the field.

The note we received came from Brett's mom.  She added, "Now we have to be champions over this brain tumor!"  She and we ask that you all keep Brett and his family in your prayers.  Go get 'em champ!

Good Sportsmanship makes Great Sports!
