Blue Wahoos recognize special young fan during game
The Blue Wahoos took time out of last night's game to recognize a young fan.
The Wahoos wanted to do something special for Carolyn Hendrix, who has been battling cancer for about a year.
Unfortunately, Carolyn couldn't make it down to the game Saturday, she had to be at the hospital.
Her brother took her place, running down the field and slapping hands with the players.
It's part of a monthly 'home run for life' recognition event sponsored by the Wahoos and Sacred Heart hospital
Some of the Wahoos players including infielder, Travis Mattair, have been wearing 'pray for Carolyn' bracelets since last season.
"It's a situation that anytime we can help out in the slightest bit, we'll do all we can."
Hendrix has had several rounds of chemo therapy as well as one big surgery.
During the surgery she not only lost the tumor but Doctors removed three ribs, as well as part of her kidney and diaphragm.
She has one more round of chemo left.
