The Dexter Adams Memorial Baseball Tournament

Posted: Updated:

A little boy's battle against Leukemia inspires a baseball tournament to help other families with children in the hospital.

The first Dexter Adams Memorial Baseball Tournament will be held this weekend at the Shawnee Schools' athletic complex. The three year old lost his battle with Leukemia last November. He was diagnosed in February of 2012 and over the next several months, the hospital became his family's second home.

Money raised during the tournament will help needy families of cancer stricken children pay bills during their hospital stays. Dexter's aunt says the idea for a tournament came about because of his love of baseball. Team registration is complete. However, a chicken barbecue and raffle will also take place this weekend.
