COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - David Pollard spent many days coaching the boys on his team on the baseball field at Carver High School.
Pollard was planning to make several improvements to the field before he died when his car was hit by another car in April.
In June, assistant coach Andy Hicks became the head coach of the team and he wants to carry on with the plans he and Pollard talked about so many times during the years.
Hicks says the team is in need of their own locker room and indoor practice facility to make the experience of playing on the field better for the team. Through various fundraisers, he and the team has only raised close to $1,500 of the $125,000 needed.
The team also is in the process of completing a memorial in memory of Pollard in the near future.
The field was unofficially re-named David Pollard Memorial Field during the last game in the spring.
