October means the playoff march to the World Series for Major League Baseball, but in college baseball it’s the practice season for the games that will come next spring. It’s also the traditional time for Sinclair Community College head baseball coach Stephen Dintaman to round up his team and take them on a tour of the Dayton CBC Donor Center.
Part of the ritual is to watch a video from Dan Jensen, one of Sinclair’s most distinguished ball players and a well-known blood donor. The team visits the Donor Room and tours the lab. On this visit, more than 20 members of the club chose to donate – many for the first time.
Congratulations and many thanks to these ‘boys of summer’ who play their hearts out in the spring, work their tails off in the fall, and give the Gift of Life as October arrives as a way of knocking it out of the park for all those in need.
