Will Kohn tragically passed away early this year after a lengthy battle with a troublesome heart and cancer. In his honor, the Alleman Pioneer baseball team has organized an annual event.

The team will host the Alleman Baseball Invite: "In Memory of Will Kohn" as part fundraiser/part service project, with half of team fees and all other donations raised going to the family of Will.

The tournament will be an indoor Hit Trax at Fielder's Choice, 801 1st Street in Milan. It will be held on the first weekends of March: March 2nd-3rd for ages 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U and March 9th-10th for ages 12U, 13U, 14U.

The cost is $150 per team. Pitchers will pitch, catchers will catch and hitters will hit. You can play at any baseball park in the world with Hit Trax. There is a 3-game guarantee.

Any donation may be made to the Kohn family and can be sent to Alleman Baseball/C/O Alleman High School 1103 40th Street, Rock Island, Illinois, 61201. Any questions, please call Johnny Marx at 309 737-2439 or email at jmarx@qconline.com, he can register your team or direct your donation.
