Tucker’s mom knew that if he had been able to live longer, Tucker would have encouraged many more kids to Play, Laugh, and Love. She wanted to spread his love for his friends, his sports, his favorite movie, and his favorite food to kids from all walks of life and from all over the state. So, Tucker’s Sandlot was born.
During the summer months, Team Tucker: Play Laugh Love provides the field, coaching, equipment, and an atmosphere of fun. At pop up dates and fields in Hopkins and Robbinsdale, Team Tucker offers two hours of baseball for any child who wishes to attend. After quality coaching and an exciting Sandlot game, every child is served Tucker’s favorite healthy meal to enjoy with new friends.
All players receive a Team Tucker t-shirt, their own baseball glove, a baseball and water bottle. This ensures that they can continue to Play and Laugh in their homes and parks with friends and family all week/summer long!
