WATCH CROSS’S 10th PSC HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

 I first met Cross Austin when he was six years old entering his first year of Coach Pitch. I have seen a little kid grow into a man. Not many people get to Coach the same kid for twelve years and get to see them grow up in  front of your own eyes. Cross has always been the hardest working kid I have ever coached. From when he was six, he always wanted to get better and be the best he could be. From hitting more, to taking more fly balls or ground balls, or just playing catch, he was always working to get better. I hope one day my son will be as hard as a worker as Cross is.  

I am honored that Cross Austin is playing for my son David for Home Runs that Help.

Cross has partnered with David Hawthorne Williams for Home Runs that Help

 David Hawthorne Williams was born on 7/30/2015. David was diagnosed in utero with two extremely rare and complex congenital heart defects; Double Inlet Left Ventricle and Tricuspid Atresia.  His diagnosis essentially meant that he would be born with only half of a functioning heart.  While David’s heart cannot be “fixed” or made whole, through a series of three open heart surgeries his doctors can create a unique system of circulation to support his body.  David will always be at risk for developing heart failure and/or liver problems in the future, but with the surgeries his doctors and parents are hopeful that he will be able to laugh, play, and attend school like any other child. Through the help of friends, a website has been set up to help The Williams Family.
