The Ezra Schwartz memorial Baseball Tournament – May 18-21st, 2017 in Sharon, Massachusetts
Also check out A Field For Ezra – A baseball field to be dedicated to the memory of an extraordinary young man, Ezra Schwartz.
Our son, Ezra, grew up in Sharon. After high school, he went on a gap year to study and do volunteer work in Israel. On November 19th, 2015, he was killed in a terrorist attack. Ezra was 18 years old.
This tournament is especially important to us and the entire Sharon community, as a way to memorialize Ezra. Ezra played little league in Sharon since he was 5 years old, eventually playing Junior Varsity and Varsity for the Maimonides School. Ezra and our four other children, ranging in age from 11 to 21, have played for years at the Sharon and Maimonides baseball fields, each of them passionate and talented baseball or softball players in their own right.
By sponsoring a baseball tournament weekend we want to honor Ezra’s passion for baseball and create fun environment to remember Ezra. Our community in Sharon is greatly looking forward to welcoming the Maimonides varsity baseball players and we have invited the varsity baseball teams from Ramaz High School, SAR School and Atlanta Jewish Academy to participate in our tournament weekend.
