Thomas Nelson baseball coach Mike Moore and four of his players are going to Havana, Cuba in late July on a ministry mission.
Coordinated through Hampton's Calvary Assembly of God, the trip is slated for July 20-30. Moore, who is also athletics director at Hampton Christian Academy, said the goal of the trip is “to encourage local Christians and non-Christians with the word of God.”
Thomas Nelson players scheduled to go on the trip are Luis Badillo, Cameron Downer, Richie Hall and Tyler Hauser.
The baseball team will play a minimum of five games and be paired with a local Christian team. Players will share stories about their faith in the churches and on the baseball fields. They will gift bicycles to pastors and ministry support leaders.
