NATURAL BRIDGE, Va. - A handful of cadets involved with the baseball program took part in a Reading Across America event at the Natural Bridge Elementary School Thursday morning. Eric Byrd, John Fuqua, Collin Fleischer and student assistant coach Dallas Wood were involved in the project, during which volunteers read to elementary students in their classrooms.
The cadets were joined by assistant athletic director for tickets and marketing Corey Bachman, and all four participated in the project with no Corps-related incentives.
First baseman Fleischer was interviewed briefly by WDBJ7. The interview is scheduled to be part of a segment that will air Thursday evening on the WDBJ7 Evening News. Check your local listings.
