Young Rays' fan dream comes true
Colton Paulk, 6, of Winter Haven, was a star pitcher on his baseball team. Two days after his birthday this past March, his season was cut short after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Instead of playing baseball Colton spent his days at the hospital with doctors appointments and chemotherapy treatments. A diehard Rays’ fan, Colton shared with Dream Coordinator, Sara Williams, that wanted to meet all the Rays players and requested to spend time with his favorite player, Evan Longoria. Colton’s dream came true Wednesday, Sept. 21 during a Rays’ home game against the New York Yankees. Colton met with the team during batting practice and spent time with his favorite player, Evan Longoria.
