In between practices a few members of the Bowling Green Hot Rods baseball team spent a few hours at the Wee Care Nursery.
It's part of United Way's Day of Caring, happening next week.
The Hot Rods did their project Thursday, because they'll be on the road next week.
"We've gotten to look at some books, read a little, play with some play-doh," says pitcher, Austin Hubbard, as he plays catch with a young boy.
The Wee Care Nursery is a non-profit child care program, operated by the Family Enrichment Center .
Supervisors at the nursery say having male role models is important for these kids.
For the players, this is a chance for them to give back.
"We enjoy helping out as much as we can," says Hubbard, "everyone comes and watches us and supports us so, we just try to give back as much as we can, when we can."
"This is my first time here," says pitcher, Justin Woodall, "the kids are all hyper, just like I used to be."
After just a few hours of playtime, the players and kids have a special connection.
The nursery gives affordable day care services to families with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
Families who qualify for the program often times have a history of child abuse or who are at high risk for abuse or neglect.
Wee Care's goal is to provide safe child care while strengthening the whole family.
And for these children it's a day they won't forget.
