PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Students at Fogarty Elementary School in Providence got a special treat on Friday.

Two members of the PawSox joined them on their way to class as part of the "walking school bus" program.

Pitcher Chandler Shepherd and catcher Tim Roberson chatted with the kids about the sport and gave the little ones baseballs and game schedules.

The volunteer based initiative run by family service of Rhode Island helps ensure students arrive to school safely and on time.
