West Virginia University Baseball Team Helping Oklahoma Tornado Victims
OKLAHOMA CITY -- A local college baseball pitcher has found himself surrounded by the devastation from a massive tornado that's hit suburban Oklahoma City. West Virginia junior Ryan Tezak, a product of Hershey High School, and the rest of his WVU teammates are in Oklahoma City for this week's Big 12 baseball tournament. Thankfully, the team is safe. It spent Monday night at an area Wal-Mart buying clothing for victims of the powerful storm. "We're parading around Wal-Mart (right now); just filling up shopping carts with underwear, shirts, socks, shorts, jeans -- stuff like that," said Tezak during a brief phone call with CBS 21 News Sports Director Jason Bristol. "It's the least we can do; chipping in to buy some clothing. "These people lost everything. All they have left is a cement pad." Officials at two hospitals say they've been treating more than 120 patients, including about 50 children. Mountaineers head coach Randy Mazey tweeted earlier Monday night the tornado missed the team by 5-10 miles. He tried to take the team to Moore, Okla., to help with recovery efforts, but was told only families are being allowed in the affected areas. The team arrived in Oklahoma City from a weekend series in Stillwater, Okla., with Oklahoma State. The 2013 Big 12 Baseball Championships are scheduled to begin Wednesday. West Virginia is the No. 3seed. Tezak's parents, Alan and Sue, told Bristol they are supposed to fly to Oklahoma City for the tournament, but they're waiting to find out if the event will now be played or if they can even fly in.
