Hinch helps combat veterans through Houston-based Camp Hope

HOUSTON (AP) — AJ Hinch clicked open his email and could hardly believe the words that filled his screen.

“I know this may sound a little farfetched to you,” the note read, “but baseball saved a young man’s life tonight.”

Hinch had been involved with the Houston-based PTSD Foundation of America and its treatment center for combat veterans called Camp Hope for some time. He knew of the good work they did.

But the manager of the Houston Astros was stunned by that message last summer from executive director David Maulsby.
