As I write this, the gifts are wrapped and the kids are anxiously (while sleeping) awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus. While it is nice to receive and give presents, let us remember that there are others who may not be as lucky as us on Christmas morning. That is why it is nice to cover an organization like the Arizona Diamondbacks whose mission from the top as expressed by Derrick Hall, is to participate in the community. The 16th annual D’back Winter Classic covered the meaning of Christmas by handing out gifts to and spending time with those less fortunate. This is community participation at its finest. I am sure each franchise has something similar to what Arizona puts on every year and I don’t mean to slight any of them. It seems as though that thanks to Mr. Hall, the D’backs take charitable giving to a higher level.
All of us at venomstrikes wish your and your families a very Merry Christmas.
