High school softball players surprise teammate with the gift of group chat

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - When the Waite High School softball team found out one of their members was being excluded from their group chat due to her phone, they made sure she could get in on the fun.

In a now-viral video posted to the team's Facebook page, members of the team, led by two seniors, can be heard telling their fellow softball player that they went out after a Saturday practice to buy her a smartphone, along with service for the rest of the school year.

The video has been viewed more than 32,000 times since it was posted to the Waite Lady Indians Softball Facebook page and several commenters on the page offering to extend the service for the teen beyond what her teammates could afford.
