The Hamels Foundation announced that Texas Rangers’ pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife Heidi are donating their 32,000 square foot home to a nonprofit organization.

The home is located in The Ozarks in Table Rock Lake, just outside Branson, Missouri.

The nonprofit, called Camp Barnabas, helps individuals with special needs and chronic illnesses.

“Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it,” Cole said in a statement. “Barnabas makes dreams come true, and we felt called to help them in a big way.”

The home, which sits on approximately 105 acres of land, was on the market for $9.75 million. It features 10 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, six half-baths, and four living areas.

Realtor.com says Cole and Heidi began building the mansion while he was still pitching in red pinstripes for the Phillies, before being traded to the Texas Rangers.

According to the Hamels Foundation says, over the past 24 years, Barnabas has provided life-changing experiences to more than 75,000 campers and missionaries.

Barnabas also includes Barnabas Prep School, a two-year faith-based collegiate program.

“Our mission is to change lives through disability ministry, and we’ve been strategically looking for ways to expand our ministry outside of a summer camp,” Jason Brawner, CEO, said. “We have no doubt that this gift will allow us to do just that.”
