COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A Columbus baseball team is helping a local family deal with tragedy.

Chatt-a-Hoots strength and conditioning coach, Chason Perry, and Ignite Sports are hosting Homeruns for Hudson - a homerun derby - to benefit 4-year-old Grayson Napier and his family.

Greyson, known to the community as Baby G, is the lone survivor of a Phenix City crash killing his mom, Ami, brother, Hudson, and father, Jimmy Napier, Jr., who was a Jordan High School teacher and coach.

Baby G is now at home with his great aunt and grandparents.

The derby is set to take place on September 24 - at Golden Park - from 5 - 7 p.m. Kids ages 9 to 12 are asked to bring bats and gloves to participate.
