Lacrosse the Internet: February 24, 2014

Chris Bates makes an impact on the world and more.

This is obviously your favorite site, but other people actually write important stuff sometimes. Now is that sometimes.

A Full Pint

Princeton lacrosse coach helps build medical facility in Ghana in honor of late wife
There are more important things in life than simple wins and losses. Making the world a better place serves a greater purpose:

“She was a wonderful soul,’’ Bates said of his wife. “She was just a very giving, loving person. I thought a children’s hospital would be a neat project to support and a legacy for her. We’ve raised a lot of money, which is testament to who she was.

“I did some pouring of cement. I mean, what could I bring to the table?’’ he said with a laugh. “What I realized there was that this was a long-term project; not just one year and then be out of there. I already promised my son we’ll return. And doctors have committed to go back."
