After a tough loss last night (9-0 against Colorado Springs), the Salt Lake Bees discovered today that the best way to get over it is to go out and make a difference in the community.

They did that by making a visit to Primary Children's Medical Center. The players took along their mascot ‘Bumble' to cheer up some patients. They also handed out some autographed baseballs.

Bees pitcher Kasey Olenberger enjoyed the experience as much as the kids. "It was actually pretty fun," Olenberger told KSL. I wasn't sure of what to expect. Once you get talking to them and break the ice it is actually pretty fun."

The Salt Lake Bees will be back to work tonight when they host the Colorado Springs Skysox. They will try to hold on to a 5-game lead in the division and also get back on the winning track.
