West Michigan Whitecaps players may have a knack for winning on the field, but not so much when it comes to playing video games or the board game Candy Land.

Four members of the team recently played games, signed autographs and shared laughs with children at Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.

“She beat me fair and square,” said Whitecaps’ left-fielder, Rashad Brown after playing 6-year-old Grand Rapids native Emma Joyce in a game of Candy Land.

Emma, who is being treated for Wilms tumor, a cancer of the kidneys, taught the rookie board game player the ins and outs to the game, but Brown still fell short in the end.

The other players that came to visit included two pitchers from the Dominican Republic, Sandy Baez and Gerson Moreno, and second-baseman David Gonzalez from Venezuela.
