Whitley loved softball and played from the age of 5. It was one of the great joys of my life to watch her learn and build confidence year after year! She was a strong hitter and was learning to pitch when she became ill. She didn't let the beast keep her down though. After 6 weeks of radiation to her brain, 5 days a week, she went on to play a double header, the team's last game of the season. She pitched and even made a double play! The proceeds from this tournament will be used to raise money for DIPG research and to continue to support the Edwardsville Youth Softball league that Whitley loved so much! If you would like to help us make this wish come true, please sign up today! We also have sponsorship opportunities available. It is a great time for a good cause so even if you don't play ball, come by and watch a game, have a brat and an ice cold beer!  We hope to see you then!
