There's a saying that "Mountaineers are everywhere". That includes just a couple of miles from where a devastating tornado tore through parts of Oklahoma on Monday afternoon.
The Mountaineer baseball team got to Oklahoma City on Sunday for the Big 12 Championship. Oklahoma City is about 10 miles north of Moore, where most of the devastation took place. Members of the team were safe in their hotel as 200 mile per hour winds destroyed parts of the city.
Randy Mazey, the team's head coach, said once they realized how bad it was he started to get texts from his team looking to help out. That's when they headed to Wal-Mart and started grabbing stuff to give to the folks who lost everything.
"When we were at Wal-Mart a lady who lost her home was in there shopping for her children," Mazey said. "We were able to give her a lot. Weather we win or loose games down here this weekend our kids have been impacted."
On Tuesday the team handed out the supplies they bought.
