Clairton players offered a video apology to Bishop Guilfoyle after attending a Dignity & Respect Sportsmanship session with Charlie Batch, volunteers from the Best of the Batch Foundation, and other speakers.
The Trib quoted Charlie saying: “It was interesting to see the kids’ reaction to going there on a school day like that. They were nervous. It was like they were taking a test. But it was a pretty cool thing. It was a good day.
“Guys opened up. They were 100 percent committed, and it was a very interactive session.”
The article said WPIAL executive director Tim O’Malley was impressed with the foundation’s presentation, and quoted him saying: “The goal was to provide an educational approach to an unfortunate situation, and provide those kids involved some tools moving forward that they can more-effectively use in dealing with adversity. The presenters today spoke to that, and I think it was well-received. From our perspective, we think it was very well done.”
