Monday, Aug. 11 saw 18 members of the Jays Care Community Crew (including some familiar faces) congregate at Goulding Park in North York for another 2014 Baseball Diamond Makeover. Community Crew members from Sportsnet and Rogers Media, including on-air hosts Evanka Osmak and Jamie Thomas, spent the day making over two diamonds at Goulding Park -- raking the warning tracks, weeding the dugouts and spectator areas, painting the bleachers and extending the outfield for little league play.
"Any opportunity I have to support Jays Care Foundation -- I am more than happy to help. I believe in what they do," said Osmak. "I think sport is so important, especially baseball. To get the youth, and even adults, involved in sport … is a great way to spend our time and a great way to meet people. If we can have these diamonds looking like a professional park and give this community a sense of pride in their field, I'm more than happy to help."
Thanks to @JaysCare for putting me to work today. Actual physical labour. Been a long time.
