'Ben's Big-League Bash' Fundraising Event

September 10th, 2005

Last Saturday, members of the Jacksonville Volunteer Fire Company participated in a fair to raise money to build a youth baseball field in memory of Benjamin Huxtable, a 4-year-old boy who died after being struck by a baseball before the start of an adult amateur game in Lutherville on Father's Day. After his death, his parents committed to fund to build a ball field in hopes that their son's spirit would live on through his love of baseball. More than $43,000 has been raised so far for the fund in addition to money raised on Saturday. Ben's Big-League Bash included baseball-related games, food, entertainment and a silent auction. The carnival took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Chestnut Grove Presbyterian Church on Sweet Air Road . Over twenty members on six pieces of apparatus assisted with standing by to provide emergency services during the event. In addition, tours of the fire engines and demonstrations of other equipment were given.
