Trumbull third baseman Casey Mack’s act of purchasing two new bats for each of the FCIAC’s three Bridgeport schools has received a lot of local attention (if you are unfamiliar with it, you can read the story here).

Now, it is also receiving national attention and may help benefit the Trumbull baseball program.

The column on Mack in The Advocate came to the attention of the Liberty Mutual Insurance company, and was recognized as part of its Responsible Sports Moments program.

Mack’s act is now eligible for Liberty Mutual’s Top 10 Responsible Sports Moments of 2013 program.

This year, with the help of U.S. Olympic skiing legend and youth sports parent Picabo Street, and a panel of sports experts from leading youth sports organizations, Liberty Mutual Insurance will name the “Top 10 Responsible Sports Moments” at the close of 2013. Each of the Top 10 moments earn their youth sports organization a $1,000 honorarium.

We will keep you updated, but it is nice to see Mack’s benevolence reach a wider audience.
