Matthew Martin Memorial Fund
Matthew Martin loved baseball almost as much as he loved his family and his dog. Born with serious and rare heart defects, baseball was one of the few sports in which he could safely participate. Despite multiple surgeries and hospitalizations throughout his life, Matthew always fought hard to recover so he could play the game he loved. He enjoyed every minute he had in the dugout and on the field for 10 years, playing tee-ball, travel baseball and ultimately earning a spot on his high school team.
Sadly, on 5/25/20 at the age of 15, Matthew unexpectedly passed away as a result of his heart condition. This donation is made through the kindness and generosity of so many people who wish to honor his memory and help other children experience the absolute joy of baseball just like Matthew did.
With these donations, The Sports Shed has filled several car trunks of gear for kids in need. Matthew’s memory will live on each time these kids step up to the plate. #batsoutformatt
