Dear Sunrise Little League Families,

We need your help!  A couple of weeks ago a longtime member of our Sunrise Little League family Frank Boyle suffered a severe stroke.  Frank had been a manager and coach at sunrise since his son Dylan began T-ball in 2011 all the way through Dylan's jacket season last year in Majors.  Frank is one of the kindest men I have known as he always was willing to work extra hard with any player and showing up at every game and practice.  The players that played for him were lucky to have him in their dugout.   More important than baseball Frank embodies what little league is all about as he understood that it is more than baseball that makes Sunrise special.  It is just not little league where Frank imparts his knowledge as he has been a teacher within LAUSD at SOCES school.  This is a great picture of appearing in a great photo in USA TODAY hugging another teacher during this past years teachers strike.38703454_1555993305440866_r.jpegEven during this Sunrise season Frank and Dylan would  come back to Sunrise to say hi and watch players they knew, still cheering them on.  Frank and Dylan have a  very special father/son relationship.  Now Frank and his family need our help.  His medical condition has currently left Frank unable to speak or use any of his lower body.  It will be a major fight and struggle for him to gain back these functions.  Frank wants to fight and get back to being the great dad and teacher he is.  So I am asking for us to come together as the great community that we are and raise as much funds for his medical fight that we can raise.  I set the bar low but I know we can pass this number.  Please give whatever you can.  

Thank you,
Rick Dem
President, Sunrise LL

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all so much for donating and truly showing how well a community can come together. I wanted to share a couple updates that I know of. About 10 days ago, coach Jim Venia paid Frank a visit at the rehab facility he is currently staying at. Though Frank is not able to vocally communicate he was able to let Jim know “thank you” to the sunrise community. He was also able to recollect some sunrise memories with Jim as well. This past Thursday both myself and coach Kevin Riepl accompanied Jim for another visit. Though Frank was more tired this time we were able to share some personal memories about our kids and Dylan and also talked about the current LA Dodgers which Frank clearly responded to. Frank was able to communicate to us via his eye movements that being able to listen to the Dodger games would be great. So we got him a radio set him up so he could listen to the Dodger games. Also in talking to Karen Boyle, Frank has started a type of brain therapy that can hopefully help in his rehab. It will not be an easy process. As both the sunrise season and the fundraising campaign wind down, please know we will ensure each dollar raised will go to aid in Franks care.
