The Tolman High School baseball team hosted Newtown High School on Saturday at McCoy Stadium in an effort to try to help the small town heal.

The idea came from the Tolman baseball coach, who offered an inviation despite no previous relationship with Newtown's coach.

Theo Murray says it's a chance for his players to learn how to give back to a community that's dealt with a terrible loss.

The teams raised over $8,000 and over 900 fans attended the game.

Tolman won 5-3.
