Flushing, N.Y. – The Queens College baseball team dodged cold weather and a busy schedule last week to take a day to volunteer at the Queens Botanical Garden.
Members of the baseball team helped clean up old, dead shrubs and bushes throughout the park. They then went around and helped staff members with planting new flowers and sowing new seeds in anticipation of the Garden’s opening to the public later in the spring.
Sophomore pitcher, John Dondero, reflected on the event: “To help prep a place that gives city folks some fresh air and flowers is nice. I know it will give them a welcomed respite. It’s rewarding to help out the Queens community.”
The QC baseball team returns to action on Wednesday, March 26, when they face Dominican on the road.
