The Zachary High School baseball team, along with assistant coach Jacob Fisher and head baseball coach Jesse Cassard, participated Nov. 1 in the 2014 Baton Rouge Walk to Cure Diabetes at LSU to support one of their own.

Cody Trisler, a junior at Zachary High and Bronco baseball player, was diagnosed five years ago with Type 1 diabetes.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation focuses on Type 1 diabetes research and finding a cure.

“Giving back without expecting something in return is the greatest form of selflessness,” Cassard said. “This was a special event because we were able to help one of our own family members.”

Cassard said nearly every member of the baseball team participated in the walk on Trisler’s behalf.
