Tommy Fitzgerald played in Maricopa Little League for several years, and lost his life to sepsis. He had recently moved to Gilbert and slid into second base during a game leaving a scrap on his knee. Shortly after, he went to the doctor and was admitted to the hospital. After a 33 day battle with sepsis Tommy passed away at the age of 12. Our Little League changed our sportsmanship award to the "Tommy Fitzgerald Sportsmanship Award" that year to honor him. The city of Maricopa has offered to build a memorial statue at the park in his honor if we can raise the funds. Please go to 33tommy.com if you can help with any amount. Let's make this happen for one of our own!
