Salt Lake Bees Conger and Evans Visit Shriners Hospital

Hank Conger and Terry Evans took some time away from the ballpark Tuesday morning to visit patients at Shriners Hospital for Children in Salt Lake City. The players met with several of the patients to offer words of encouragement as well sign autographs and take pictures. This was one of several visits from Bees players this season.
