The Liberty baseball team spent its day off from fall practice by visiting patients in both the pediatrics and skilled care units of Lynchburg's Virginia Baptist Hospital yesterday.

The Flames' players and coaching staff spent time with patients in both units, handing out baseball caps and t-shirts. In addition, the players and coaches visited and became acquainted with those in the units and the Virginia Baptist staff.

The Liberty baseball team plans return visits to the hospital and other community projects throughout the year.

The Flames return to fall practice today. Liberty's "fall ball" ends the week of Oct. 14 with a five-game "World Series." The intra-squad series begins Oct. 16.
