MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Three members of the No. 10 Georgia College & State University baseball team will be recognized for their volunteer work at the GIVE Center.

Current players Andrew Evans (Milledgeville, Ga.) and Brett George (Dacula, Ga.) and former Bobcat Danny McCorkell have all volunteered at least 50 hours, which is the requirement to become a member of the organization Strong Enough to Care, which encourages males at Georgia College to volunteer in different programs that may be of interest to them and also track their hours at the GIVE Center.

Evans and McCorkell have volunteered 60 hours while George has volunteered 64 hours since January 2009. The student-athletes will be recognized for their efforts Wednesday, April 28 in the home game against Erksine College at 6 p.m.

Georgia College is back in action at John Kurtz Field, hosting No. 14 Valdosta State University Wednesday, April 21 at 4 p.m.
