Chester mom honored for continuing to embrace baseball after her son’s death

Toni Perrigan returned to the Chester youth baseball complex where her son suffered an ultimately fatal heart attack in 2009, just two weeks after the harrowing incident. She never stopped volunteering; in fact, she ramped up her participation as a way of dealing with her 13-year-old son’s death. For her efforts, Perrigan was recently honored as Little League baseball’s Southeastern Region Volunteer of the Year.
