Salem Red Sox make visit to Carilion Children's Hospital

Kids at Carilion Children's Hospital got a surprise visit from a few friendly faces today.

The Salem Red Sox came to spread some cheer along with their mascot Mugsy. Carilion says it's important to provide a sense of normalcy when children are in the hospital for long stays.

"I think it's more about them than us, but it definitely goes full circle. It makes us feel good because we're out here cheering them up a little bit," said 2nd Baseman Brett Netzer.

Carilion says the Mill Mountain Zoo will make a visit soon.
