My name is Sharon Fradd. I'm 47 yrs old and live in Cape Town. I am raising funds for my wonderful son, Tristan Fradd.
Tristan lost his father to a massive heart attack when he was 9 years old and was busy with national selections at the time, his father never got to see him play in his first ever tournament as he passed just before that.
Tristan is now 11 and has played in 3 national tournaments and has brought home gold for his province. He is passionate about baseball and has huge aspirations to play MLB one day and hopefully a scholarship to learn and play for the best. He works extremely hard and gives his all to his coaches, teammates, peers and himself. He is well loved by all in baseball and has a huge amount of respect for the game and the people associated in and around it.
Tristan has been selected to play for his country in the U12 world baseball championships being held in Taiwan in July 2019. This is a huge honour and everything he has worked for. Unfortunately, due to circumstances around his father’s death and grandfather having cancer I am unemployed and struggling to find work at my age, we struggle on a daily basis as I nurse my father and look after my mother and two young boys.
Please help me and Tristan to make his dream a reality and all his aspirations and hard work towards this a reality. His father in heaven will be so proud and with him on the field. I have a month to try raise this money for him..I would be forever indebted and grateful for any help, sponsor or donation towards making his dreams come true.
This has to be reached in a month and half as they leave for Taiwan for the world championships mid July. The funds will be used to cover his flights, visa, hotel and meals.
Tristan has a huge opportunity to get a scholarship to further his career in this amazing sport, this SA tour is everything he has been working towards and he is dedicated, has a passion and love for what he does and he has huge aspirations to play in the MLB one day with the best.
This has been Tristan's saviour since losing his beloved father and he never used to talk but now has grown so much with the love and determination through this sport.
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the South African Baseball Association*
