SURE TO DOWNLOAD IT FREE. YOU’LL FIND THE LIVE DOPPLER 13 WEATHER APP IN YOUR PHONE’S APP STORE. AND NEW TONIGHT AT 530 THERE’S A HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL TEAM THAT’S IN SERIOUS NEED OF HELP. THEY NEED HELP REPLACING ALL OF THEIR EQUIPMENT. YEAH, JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING WAS LOST IN A FIRE JUST WEEKS BEFORE THEY HIT THE FIELD. AND TONIGHT ALAN CARTER TELLS US THAT THEIR COACH SAYS THIS WAS TOTALLY PREVENTABLE WHEN IT LOOKS LIKE THIS OUTSIDE. BUT BASEBALL SEASON IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. IT’LL BE A TOUGH START, HOWEVER, FOR THE REDSKINS MANUAL HIGH SCHOOL. IT DOES NOT GET ANY EASIER LOOKING AT IT. NO. I SEE A LOT OF MEMORIES. THERE’S NOT MUCH LEFT IN THEIR EQUIPMENT SHED AFTER FIRE RAN THROUGH IT THIS WEEK FOR ASSISTANT COACH JEFF BREEDING. ACTUALLY I CRIED. IT’S ABSOLUTELY CRUSHING. AS A FORMER BASEBALL PLAYER ALUMNAI AND NO ONE WHAT THESE KIDS IN DONE JUST CHARRED RUBBLE OF WHAT USED TO BE THE INSIDE IS GUTTED. THAT’S WHAT’S LEFT OF A CATCHER’S HELMET. WE HAD TWO OR THREE BAGS OF EQUIPMENT, A COUPLE SET CATCHER’S GEAR, MASKS, BATS TO THREE BUCKETS TO BASEBALLS RUN AND ALL OF OUR TOOLS TO TAKE CARE OF THE PHIL BEWLEY DON’T KNOW FOR CERTAIN BUT COACH SAYS THEY’VE HAD SOME PROBLEMS WITH TO USE THIS BUILDING IN THE PAST. IN FACT WHEN THEY CAME BACK TO SURVEY ALL THE DAMAGE, THEY FOUND THAT THE LOCK TO THE DOOR HAD BEEN PRIED OFF. I CAN SEE RIGHT THERE THERE WAS AN EXTENSION CORD OF SOMETHING PLUGGED IN. WE NEVER HAD AN EXTENSION CORD PLUGGED IN. AND I UNDERSTAND PEOPLE TRYING TO FIND A PLACE TO STAY WARM, STAY OUT OF. BUT WHEN YOU DO THAT, HERE’S WHAT HAPPENS. THE KIDS PAY THE PRICE OFFICIALLY BECAUSE OF THE FIRE REMAINS UNDER INVESTIGATION. COACH READING ESTIMATES THE LOSS TO BE ABOUT TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. ALUMNAI WILL HELP REPLACE SOME BUT NOT ALL ESPECIALLY BY THE TIME THE PLAYERS BEGIN PRACTICING MARCH 16TH. WE’RE GOING TO DO OUR BEST TO RECOVER THE BEST WE CAN AND HAVE A SEASON IN INDIANAPOLIS.
