World Series champion Chris Sale returned to his former stomping ground Saturday to show support for Southwest Florida’s families in need.
The former FGCU Baseball ace was at Alico Arena on FGCU’s campus this weekend to promote the Laces Of Love charity that took donations of shoes to local children during the basketball doubleheader.
“This is where we call home,” Sale said. “And to be able to make our community better, and to do that through not only through Laces of Love but where we kind of grew up and where my wife and I met here at FGCU, it makes it a bit more special.”
This marks the fifth straight year for Sale partnering with the charity to give back. He said he appreciates the community helping him give hundreds of pairs of shoes to children each year.
