In the Grant Whitaker Memorial baseball game, held Saturday, April 27 under cloudy skies, the Stockbridge Varsity Boys baseball team won over Dansville. The Ingham County Honor guard presented the flag before the game, assisted by Grant’s nephews, Henry Whitaker and Tyler Adiska. Henry and Tyler, along with Grant’s father, Clyde Whitaker, also threw out the first pitch.
Numerous sponsors contributed funds for the Grant Whitaker Memorial Scholarship, used to help students entering into a career in law enforcement, emergency services or firefighting.
The Whitaker’s thanked all of the sponsors, Stockbridge Community Schools, and the many volunteers who made the event possible.
