Baseball Ramp Project


Members of the Granbury High School baseball team teamed up with the Texas Ramp Project on October 1, 2011, to build a wheelchair ramp for a local individual who could not afford to build one.


Since incorporating in 2006, the non-profit initiative enlists volunteers to build durable ramps for disabled and elderly people who are in economic need.  According to the organization, over two thousand ramps have been built state-wide to provide these individuals with the freedom to come and go from their house.


“This is the second ramp the Pirate baseball team has helped in building,” commented head coach Brad Hart.  “We look forward to helping on more in the future.”
