For the second year Marietta College stepped out of the classroom for a day of service to honor the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Athletes and students took part in 10 off campus service projects.

"It’s phenomenal and something that we should do more and not just on MLK day. So, hopefully we can get out here more because I know our guys are enjoying it, I’m enjoying it so it’s pretty cool," said Chad Langley, Marietta College, assistant baseball coach.

The baseball team enjoyed coloring, playing games, and just talking with the children.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s message was to come together and help each other.

"He was very inspirational in what he meant as far as giving back and everyone coming together and taking care of each other and I think this is a great example of that," said Rebecca Johnson, Boys & Girls Club of Washington County, executive director. The adult kids from the college are coming back and helping the youth.”

The baseball team was happy to be of service and that was a part of Dr. King’s message.

The Boys and Girls Club invited the team to come back anytime.
