Ancilla College Baseball Team and JESSE Kids

The Ancilla College men’s baseball team hosted their annual game with students from Joint Educational Services in Special Education (JESSE) last Friday.

Head coach Joe Yonto happily mentioned, “It is a great day for all. I have one rule for everyone involved and that is they must have fun and enjoy the day! So far in the 7 years we’ve been getting together that rule has batted 100%.”

The JESSE Kids from all around the area schools (Plymouth, Knox, Rochester, etc) gathered together with the Ancilla Baseball Team for the day and played baseball. The JESSE Kids and the Ancilla Baseball Team run, hit, play catch, talk, smile, and laugh which includes having lunch together.

Coach Yonto proudly stated, “I also want to thank all those who helped, from the support for the kids on the field from those watching and cheering, the admissions office for the donation of water bottles which the kids love, the Ancilla athletic department and the Jesse staff. This is what Ancilla is all about and that is the atmosphere around here whether it be at the chapel, the college or on the athletic fields, it’s about people enjoying, appreciation and truly caring. It was a beautiful day and we all united as One Team!”

Ancilla College (www.ancilla.edu) is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana, sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
