Players with the Parkland Little League visited one of their teammates on Saturday at Broward Health Medical Center while he recovers from a car crash that killed his mother.

Michael Weiner, 11, survived a crash that took the life of his mother Chrstianne, a fourth grade teacher at Coral Springs Elementary School last Tuesday.  Both were in her vehicle when a stolen car, driven by Eric Abraham, 17, ran a red light, crashing into them near Sample Road. Weiner was transported to Broward Health North where she was pronounced dead a short time later.  

In a statement on Facebook, the team spokesperson wrote: “So proud and humbled to see our 2016 World Series players visit Michael and wish him to a speedy recovery from his injuries. The players presented him with a signed baseball bat and other team apparel. Michael was all smiles and his father Mark expressed how truly blessed they feel from all the support of the community.”
