PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Paul Goldschmidt spent Wednesday morning like he spends many of his days on the way to Chase Field.

The D-backs' All-Star first baseman stopped by “The Zone” at Phoenix Children’s Hospital to visit kids. Goldschmidt has been a regular at PCH for the past six seasons and presented PCH with a $186,121.94 check, with funds raised during his charity bowling event.

"It speaks more to the people that were at the event, teammates of mine that came that people could bowl with them,” said Goldschmidt. “The sponsors there, the people that came or bought stuff at the silent auction.  My name was on it but it was really everyone else doing a lot of the work. It's all going here to help the hospital. It's all going here to help this community and that's how we really see it. We're just helping out our neighbors, the people around us that are really in a time of need."

Goldy’s Fund for Kids helps support Phoenix’s Children’s Hospital Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. Paul and his wife Amy are chairs of the “Hope Lives Here” campaign and spend many days at PCH, trying to bring joy to kids.

"My wife and I just come hand out. If the kids want to read a book, we read a book. If we want to play video games, we'll play video games, do crafts. It's really just about them, just come spend a few minutes of our time here,” said Goldschmidt. "I feel like the kids are always like, 'Thanks for coming.' I'm like, ‘You guys have no idea, you're doing just as much for me as I am for them.'  It really keeps baseball in perspective."
