The Hilton Head Baseball Association recently honored the life of former player Khalil Singleton, an 8-year-old Hilton Head Island boy who was tragically shot and killed by a stray bullet in a 2012 gunfight.
The association asked his parents, Kareem Singleton and Katrina Dixon, to throw out the first pitch on opening night of the 2016 season. Both parents both threw pitches at the same time, not far from a banner honoring Khalil. The banner travels each year to the field he would have played on. The baseball association has also set up a scholarship fund in Khalil’s honor.
