Here’s a dose of feel-good news. Texas Rangers very own pitcher Cole Hamels has donated his home to a charity based in Missouri. The home, also in Missouri, was built in 2012 and sits on 100 acres of land. Hamels and his wife, Heidi, donated the home to Camp Barnabas, which according to their website, “provides camping experiences to people with special needs and chronic illnesses, along with their siblings.”
The non-profit was gifted with the $9.75 million mansion, making it their largest donation ever. CEO of Camp Barnabas, Jason Brawner, said, “Our mission is to change lives through disability ministry, and we’ve been strategically looking for ways to expand our ministry outside of a summer camp. We have no doubt this gift will allow us to do just that.”
