The Generosity of the Babe Ruth Volunteer goes above and beyond. One such generous volunteer is Kevin Brooks from Fairfax, Virginia.  Most people volunteer for a few years as their kids pass through the league.  Some stay a few seasons longer.  But Kevin Brooks has given decades to the Greater Fairfax Babe Ruth League as a player and as a coach.  Pictured far left is Brooks as a coach and as a player.  Pictured left, bottom row, first from left, is Kevin's 1985 Fairfax team photo.

Josh Fields Tom Hauskey

Pictured far left is Josh Fields.  Pictured center is Tom Hauseky.  Both young men are graduates of the Springdale, Arkansas Babe Ruth League.  And both young men participated in the 2009 College World Series.

Joseh, a graduate of Southern Mississippi University, played on the 1999 Cal Ripken All-Star team from Springdale that won the Southwest Regional and finished 4th in the Cal Ripken World Series.  He was voted the Most Outstanding Player.  Tom, a graduate of the University of Arkansas was fellow teammate of Josh and also participated in the 1999 Cal Ripken World Series. 

After graduating from the Cal Ripken program, both of these young men played Babe Ruth Baseball together, making the all-star team each season.

As they say, "a smile is worth a thousand words."

A simple smile creates its own message without words. In many cases, the smile takes on a specific meaning because of the surroundings or situation in which it occurs.
The specific meaning of these young smiles signify the excitement these youngsters from the Santa Fe, Florida Babe Ruth League feel as they celebrate Opening Day and the upcoming softball season.
