Help the Jamon Brown Foundation send team to the Babe Ruth World Series

Jamon Brown Foundation seeks help to send team to the Babe Ruth World Series

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) -  Former Card Jamon Brown is giving a major gift to some hard-working kids in WAVE Country.

And he could use your help.

Brown's Foundation is donating to the 13-U West Louisville Baseball Team.

They're heading to the Babe Ruth World Series next week and could use help defraying the costs.

The team is only $5,000 away from their $40,000 goal.

Kosair Charities - and a number of other organizations - matched the Jamon Brown Foundation donation.

"It's a great blessing to have people in the community, in Louisville, all the way around Kentucky, supporting us" said Coach Frank Thomas. "All of the people that are backing us, it's a beautiful thing."

This is the first time the team has made it to the championship.

"Not a lot of people get this opportunity so we're just trying to make the best of it and trying to come home with the championship," player Austyn Peak said.

You can donate via the GoFundMe page here.

The check will be presented to the boys on Monday during a parade planned to congratulate them and send them off.
