Stepping Up to the Plate

In the recently completed fall semester, USC student-athletes totaled 2,747 community service hours.  No sport reached out to the community more than baseball which racked up a record-setting 507 hours averaging 12.1 hours per student-athlete.

Despite not playing a meaningful game, the baseball team had a meaningful semester leading five different projects.

"These events are a great opportunity to be able to give back with the team," said sophomore OF Vahn Bozoian, who recently visited a VA hospital.   "Being a good sport and an all-around good person is something that these veterans show us how to do, both on and off the field."

While baseball is leading the charge, several programs made an impact in the community this fall.  Men's and women's track and field combined to do 512 hours, while women's lacrosse and women's soccer committed more than 260 hours each.

Baseball also pitched in at the 2013 Community Bowl.
