What: Connor Michalek Home Plate Tailgate

When: Monday, June 17, at 7 p.m.

Where: McCully Field Complex

Why: Community support for a Hampton family

Monday, June 17, 2013, 11:57 a.m.
 

Connor Michalek, 7, is a Hampton resident who has battled brain and spine cancer for several years but has continued to play baseball through all of his ups and downs. Baseball has been one of the few things that have helped distract him and his family from the many hours of doctors' visits, testing and chemotherapy.

Tonight, June 17, his team (the Pinto Red Sox) play a night game and are asking anyone who is interested in making a young boy's life a little brighter to come up and support Connor by participating in the “Connor Michalek Home Plate Tailgate”.

The goal is to pack the park with fans and well-wishers who can bring along signs, banners and anything else to show support for Connor.

ROOT Sports will also be there to capture the event for a feature story in an upcoming Pirates broadcast.

The event begins at McCully Field No. 3 at 7 p.m., with the Red Sox vs. Pirates game beginning at 8:30.
