Pete Hughes took over the Oklahoma Sooners baseball program this season and brought his community service program simply title "19 Ways" with him according to the university. The concept is for the baseball team to contribute to the community in nineteen different and impactful ways. On Thursday, Coach Hughes and his ball club took one step closer to completing their challenge by hosting a "Shave For The Brave" event.
