Meet one of the good guys of sports

Craig spends much of his free time helping the Sunshine Kids. They are a group of about 400 cancer patients ages 2 to 18 in Houston.

What do you do with the kids?

I love playing baseball and games with them. We have fun. About 20 of the kids were waiting for me with water pistols at my charity golf tournament last year. I got soaked! After that, one kid brought me a water gun. So I was ready for them this year!

Do you have any advice for kids about helping others?

Instead of sitting around watching TV, spend half an hour putting a smile on somebody's face. You can have a positive impact on a person's life. It doesn't take much time to do it.
