Matt Joyce makes visit, donation to All Children's in Brandon



Rays OF Matt Joyce talks often of how he enjoys playing in his hometown, and doing what he can to help the community that raised him.

Wednesday, that included a visit to the All Children's Hospital in Brandon, where he made a $5,700 donation, representing half the proceeds from his recent Sweet Swingin' Baseball Camp, and visited with patients.

The other half of the proceeds will go to the North Brandon Youth Baseball program, where he used to play.

"It feels awesome, just to be able to give back where I grew up," Joyce said. "One of my biggest goals is to help Tampa and the place where I grew up. Leave it a little bit better off than before I came."
