Tournament Raises Money for Dickson Families

7-15-06 – Baseball teams from all over Oklahoma are taking the field Saturday and Sunday to help raise money for two Dickson families, both recently touched by tragedy.

The tournament takes place at the YMCA baseball fields in Ardmore. Proceeds will be split between the McDougall and Mays families.

Kristopher McDougall and his 5-year-old son, Adam, were killed in a car crash on Highway 199 on May 19th. Twenty month old Conner was critically injured and is recovering in a hospital.

On July 5th, another Dickson family, the Mays, lost a father and six year old son after a semi crashed into their vehicle on Highway 199. Nine-year-old Luke passed away from his injuries days later.

A group of Dickson residents planned this weekend’s benefit for the families. Saturday morning, the group raised at least $10,000.

The games will continue Sunday at noon at the YMCA baseball fields in Ardmore.
