Seven players for the Trenton Thunder, the Double-A Affiliate of the New York Yankees, volunteered at a Habitat for Humanity home build in East Trenton this morning.
The players who took part in the event were: RHP Grant Duff, RHP Eric Wordekemper, RHP Ryan Pope, RHP David Phelps, RHP D.J. Mitchell, OF Austin Krum and IF Justin Snyder.
The players worked on a duplex that has been under construction since March 2009. They helped put the “finishing touches” on the home including the installation of lattace to the back porch and working on the ceiling of the front porch. One of the homes is expected to be completed and turned over to the new owners on Friday, April 30. The Thunder front office staff spent December 2, 2009 at the same location installing sheet rock and siding.
