AAABA Tournament baseball fans will have an opportunity to assist a member of the tournament’s “family” during Thursday’s 6 p.m. game between Johnstown Paul Carpenter Capital Advisors and Brooklyn at Point Stadium.
A car locally designed and built by Paul Boratko, who recently appeared on the popular History Channel show “Counting Cars,” will be on display to promote a charity auction that continues through Sunday.
The auction will benefit 3-year-old Callan Kott, the son of AAABA Hall of Famer Ross Kott, who was a star on Johnstown’s 1995 Sani-Dairy team that finished as national runner-up. Kott and his family now reside in New Orleans.
Boratko and Kott were classmates and each graduated from Greater Johnstown High School.
Callan Kott was diagnosed with leukemia a few days before Christmas in 2015 and is undergoing treatment.
The AAABA Tournament also will pitch in by encouraging fans to donate to Team Callan. Donations will be collected near the right-field entrance at Point Stadium.
