HARTFORD, Conn. – On April 2, Trinity baseball players stepped up to the plate for the Bone Marrow donation registry. In conjunction with the Be The Match organization, the players got their mouths swabbed and encouraged fellow students to do the same. After simply having the swab done, students are then placed in the Bone Marrow registry in the hopes of becoming a match for someone in dire need.

Bantam first-year Cooper Mooney (Southbury, Conn.) has a childhood friend who was a recipient of this life-saving gift and in an effort to give back, Cooper enlisted the help of second-year head coach Bryan Adamski and his fellow teammates. The Bantams joined the cause and helped increase the registry by more than 50 donors. More importantly, the team did a great job getting the word out about bone marrow donation and how it can save lives.
