Youth baseball team donates to charity

Players on the 9U Mansfield Red Sox baseball team flexed their generosity after playing in the Kyle Lewis Foundation Tournament.

Receiving a partial fees refund after the tournament because some of their games were cancelled due to rain, the team decided to donate the refund, which was more than $90, to the foundation.

The Kyle Lewis Amoeba Awareness Foundation is dedicated to Kyle Gracin Lewis, a 7-year-old camper who died of Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis in 2010. It seeks to raise awareness concerning the water-borne amoeba Naegleria Fowleri, which causes extremely deadly infections which are easily prevented.
