Brother Denys Cormier, a self-styled monk who runs a soup kitchen in the city, has gone to bat for the homeless by forming a softball team of street people. This spring, the 35-year-old monk started the softball team, "The Soupers," to raise money for the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen (DESK). The team is made up of 22 homeless men, ranging in age from the early 20s to early 30s, who regularly eat at DESK. The Soupers play all challengers and, win or lose, ask their opponents for a donation.
