Tolman High invites Newtown to McCoy

Some Tolman High School ball players are giving a baseball team in Newtown, Connecticut a thrill, inviting them to play on a minor league field.

On April 20th, the Tolman Tigers and the Newtown Nighthawks will play at McCoy Stadium. The idea came from Tolman's coach, who says the special match–up is as much about helping the small town heal as it is a lesson for the boys of Tolman High.

"I'm very excited to meet them, you know, shake hands just say condolences and show them around and just have fun, play the game of baseball," said Tolman baseball player Carlos Sanabria.

"It's good for us to be able to give back to them through sports, which is what we do best," said player Jason Maynard.

Tolman plays a handful of games at McCoy every year, but for this game the PawSox are pulling out all the stops,  lighting up the score board, using the PA system, and holding a special moment of silence for Newtown.
