    Tribe Baseball and The Arc
The William and Mary Tribe baseball team reached out into the community on October 20, participating in Fitness Night at The Arc of Greater Williamsburg. 15 Tribe student-athletes helped 40 members of The Arc engage in exercises and baseball activities for two hours at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Williamsburg.

The evening started with the Tribe players introducing themselves, and then discussed why they love to exercise. After the discussion, the Tribe student-athletes and the members of The Arc warmed up and participated in relay races, baseball skill drills, and an indoor baseball game. In closing, the Tribe players talked about the importance of developing healthy eating habits.

The Tribe baseball team will volunteer again at The Arc on November 10, when more Tribe student-athletes will again help out at Fitness night.

The Arc of Greater Williamsburg provides community-based advocacy and activities to improve the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. For a complete schedule of activities, or to find out how to volunteer, please visit their website at www.TheArcGW.org.

The William and Mary Tribe baseball team will open up the 2010 season on Friday, February 19, when the Tribe opens up a three-game set with Maryland-Eastern Shore at Plumeri Park.
