PULASKI, VA – The Mariners put reading on their list before baseball for the last two days as players made appearances at the Radford and Pulaski Libraries for story time. Eight Mariner players in particular showcased their love for reading during story time for local children on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
Infielders Bryan Brito and Jordy Lara, utility man Gilmer Lampe, and pitcher Domingo Brazoban, all Latin American-born players, were on hand to read (in Spanish) popular children’s books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? to an attentive bunch of youngsters and their parents at the Radford Library Tuesday morning. Afterwards, the attendees and the players happily took part in numerous songs and dances, as well as arts and crafts.
