Snapshot: Westfield Youth Sports Incorporated opening day


Westfield Youth Sports Incorporated celebrated its fourth annual Baseball Opening Day Ceremonies April 19 on Diamond No. 14 at Grand Park. The ceremonies honored Spencer Lancaster who threw out the first pitch to Mayor Andy Cook in 2011. Spencer lost his battle to brain cancer later that year but the way he carried himself was such an inspiration to everyone who met and knew him. He was 8 years old and a student and Oak Trace.

This year, the opening pitch featured Spencer’s brothers, Hunter and Noah Lancaster, throwing the first pitch to Cook. Additionally, two players were awarded the third annual Spencer Lancaster Memorial Award for demonstrating the qualities that Spencer exemplified so well.

The event also had a silent auction with all funds raised to be evenly split between the American Cancer Society in Spencer’s name and the Westfield Youth Assistance Program. (Submitted photos)
