BALTIMORE, Md. (WJZ) — In his prime, Baltimore Orioles vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson was known for his home run swing. But it’s a recent save that’s getting him a lot of fanfare.
When an unexpected hike in league fees threatened to put KIPP Ujima Village Academy’s baseball season in jeopardy, Anderson stepped up to the plate and delivered in a big way. He made a donation to cover the program’s fees for the entire season.
It gets better.
On Friday, the former outfielder turned executive showed up for one of the program’s scrimmages where he fielded questions from young student-athletes. He joined the kids for batting practice. Plus, he even made time to snap a selfie with one player.
Hats off to Anderson for a classy move.
