Another Dino joins Team Jokbal This past Saturday 09-02-17 Team Jokbal made the trip to Masan Baseball Stadium for the second addition to the charity from an NC Dino. This contribution came to us from Xavier Scruggs. It was great to finally catch up with Xavier after originally contacting him about what we are trying to do. We got a chance to meet with Xavier after the game down next to the dugout. Although he did not play in the game that night he was still able to take the time and meet us which were great.
We were able to meet and have a quick conversation with Xavier and after I could not speak more highly about him as a humble and down to earth guy. He graciously was able to give us two of his pro model bats one that was game used the other not and also he gave of a pair of his own used batting gloves. All of the items that he contributed he signed for us right there in person next to the dugout.
It is great to see another contribution come Team Jokbal’s way from the Dinos. This charity would be nothing without the players and their contributions and we are eternally grateful.
Check back often for more updates from Team Jokbal.
We were recently in touch with Xavier Scruggs of the NC Dinos. After sending him a message about what we are doing at Team Jokbal, he said that he is more than happy to help us out in any way possible. We had an opportunity to run him through the details of what we are looking to collect from players for the charity auction and he told me to just keep him posted on when we are able to make a trip out to see the Dinos again and he will be happy to hook us up with some of his stuff. With that being said, it looks like there will be another journey to Masan once everyone has finished off their summer travels. We are really looking forward to getting a chance to catch up with Xavier in person. While connecting with people via message is great, it's always great to catch up with them in person to be able to put names with faces, share a few stories, and show our appreciation to players such as him.
What more can I say about Xavier other than he is a great guy that cares about giving back to the communities in Korea. We there is one more thing that I can say, him and his wife Jessica are loving Korea and they have a pretty awesome Youtube Channel called "Humble Abroad." You can check it out here:
Remember to check back often as we keep all of you updated on who we have been able to catch up with and what new items we have for the auction.
