Texas Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife are donating their $9.75 million mansion to a Christian organization that serves special needs children.

Hamels and his wife, Heidi, are donating their 32,000 square foot house and its 100 acres of land at Missouri’s Table Rock Lake to Camp Barnabas, The Blaze reports:

Camp Barnabas has two locations in the Ozarks and notes in its values that “Christ comes first always” and staffers “point people to Christ in everything we do.”

The organization doesn’t just serve kids with special needs but also serves campers’ siblings and parents, as well as missionaries.

The Hamels never lived in the home, because Cole Hamels was playing for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2012 when construction started, but had been traded to the Rangers by the time it was completed.
