BOURBONNAIS, Ill. – Over 200 Bourbonnais Braves youth baseball players will wear helmet stickers to honor Tucker Swain, a 9-year-old player from Westfield, Indiana who tragically lost his life after being hit by a car last weekend.
The stickers were created to show support for Tucker and his family, who have received an outpouring of love and financial support from the community.
A GoFundMe campaign has raised over $155,000 towards a $50,000 goal to help ease the Swain family’s financial burden. The stickers, which bear the hashtags #biggerthanbaseball and #TS12, serve as a reminder of the power of the baseball family to come together in difficult times.
