Fort Pierre 6 year old receives the gift of baseball through a SWITCH HITTER from Make-A-Wish and partner entities

For the past week, Tyler and Stacey Green’s youngest son has been able to play baseball with his siblings. While that may not seem like a big deal to many people, Tyler says it is for 6-year-old Alex who was born with a rare genetic disorder.

Green says through a South Dakota Department of Transportation coworker and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Alex received a SWITCH HITTER.

Green says once he and Stacey knew it would be perfect for Alex when they watched a video of the SWITCH HITTER Rhoades sent them.

The Green family could almost field a baseball team on their own.

Green says having a crowd of cheering fans at the Stanley County Elementary School gymnasium when Alex received the wish (July 29, 2022) is something they will always treasure.

Alex will be a Kindergartner this fall at the Stanley County School.

Make-A-Wish partners making Alex’s gift possible include Adopt-A-Wish partner Ty Eschenbaum Foundation in memory of Autumn; Ability Tech LLC; Pizza Ranch; the Chesterman Company; the Pierre Trappers; the South Dakota Department of Transportation; the Stanley County School District; Governor Kristi Noem; photographer Tom Plooster and volunteer Laura Streich.
