Springfield College introduced the newest member of the Men's Baseball team today.
The team adopted 7-year-old Blake Pierce for the upcoming season.
Pierce is battling leukemia and through the partnership with Team IMPACT, he was introduced with a “Draft Day” welcoming.
Pierce officially was welcomed to the team who presented him with his own uniform.
Team IMPACT is a non-profit organization designed to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses by matching kids with local college athletic teams.
This is the third separate occasion in which Springfield College Athletic Teams have been involved with Team IMPACT.
