MIDLAND-It was more than just a tournament this weekend for the West Texas Hitmen Select Baseball Team U8.
The boys ages eight and under worked with one of their team moms to raise more than $1900 at their USAAA Tournament in Midland.
All of the proceeds will go to benefit the West, TX tragedy. The idea came from adults, but the kids got on board to raise the money.
"That was an awesome thing to do, to show the kids to help others in their time of need, hats off to you for not only coaching the kids in baseball but also in life," said Victor Urias, the father of one of the players.
The team placed first in their tournament this weekend.
