It's difficult to take a tragic situation and turn it into a positive. On Sunday, the baseball community in Bethlehem, New York tried to do just that. In honor of Lazar LaPenna, the 10-year-old boy that lost his life while playing Little League at the end of April due to seizure, Tri Village Little League hosted a #BatsOutForLazar baseball clinic open to all Capital Region boys and girls 5-12 years-old for only $5.
