CAMILLUS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Alec Baldwin wants to make sure students at a central New York school have the opportunity to get outside and play ball.

Local media outlets report that the actor was in the Syracuse area this past weekend to help a local high school’s fundraising campaign to save its modified sports program.

The star of “30 Rock” attended an event held Sunday in the gym at West Genesee High School, where one of his nephews plays sports. Baldwin’s mother and two sisters live in the Syracuse area.

Baldwin grew up on Long Island, where his father was a high school football and baseball coach.

He donated $25,000 to save modified sports at West Genesee this school year and is helping raise money for next year’s programs.

Baldwin is newly engaged to 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas.
