ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) —— News10NBC is celebrating another winner of the “Do the Right Thing” award, and here are Joe and Paul Conroy!

The two are seniors at the Hope Hall school.

They love baseball, and last November they were at a training complex in Gates where they often volunteer to help other young players. The power went out, scaring some of the kids.

The brothers used lights on their phones to help everyone pack up and go outside to meet their parents.

Joey and Paul stayed until the last boy left the building.
