West Virginia Baseball Aids In Tornado Relief Efforts

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The West Virginia baseball team sat in their Oklahoma City hotel and watched in horror on TV as Monday's tornadoes ripped through Moore.

But, much like many people in Oklahoma during the tragedy, they refused to sit and do nothing.

The Mountaineers, who are in OKC for this weekend's Big 12 Tournament in Bricktown, left the hotel and tried to head to Moore to help in any way they could but were turned away.

So they headed to Wal-Mart.

The team purchased cart after cart full of much needed items to assist in the relief efforts. Here is a link to the moving video released by the WVU Athletic Department.
