Over the weekend, the Highland Challenger League unveiled a never-before-seen monument memorializing two fallen all-stars.

The memorial honors the memories of Glennden 'Superman' Stovall and Ryne Phillips, after both passed away at the young age of 13 in 2019.

"The fact that they're no longer with us, we wanted to give them a place to be memorialized, so that their friends and family could remember them for the good times they had," said Highland Challenger League Coach Noah Robinson. "That this was one of the places that was a bright spot in their life and it seemed fitting to have their names here to remind folks of the joy they brought to not only this organization but to their families and their friends."

Additionally, players in the Highland Challenger League received trophies on Sunday to wrap up the season after missing out last year due to the pandemic.

The Highland Challenger League baseball program serves youth ages 3 to 18 with physical and intellectual disabilities.

Players and families are now looking forward to the 2022 season.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
