Redbirds Give a Gift 

One member of the Redbirds RBI program has been selected to receive one year of elite athletic training with D1 Sports Training, a speed, strength and agility training facility in Cordova.

"This program will give a child the opportunity to go through some training to better prepare his body not only for baseball but for sports in general," Redbirds Vice President of Community Relations Reggie Williams said.

D1 Sports Training is owned and operated by both college and professional athletes, including partial ownership by Shane Battier of the Memphis Grizzlies.

"We are proud to have the opportunity to expose a child who would otherwise never have this type of opportunity to have access to this kind of professional training," Williams said.
