Tyler Schambach presents the first place plaque for the Softball Tournament to “Shell Shock.”

Several area residents took part in the 2nd Annual Fragile X Softball Tournament along with other activities held on Saturday, June 24.
More than $1,900 was raised as proceeds from the event will go to the St. Louis Fragile X Resource Center. That center also had a team participate in the event held in Farber.
The event was organized by the Mike and Carol Schambach family.
Their son Tyler Schambach threw out the first pitch for the event. Tyler was diagnosed with Fragile X Syndrome in March 2006 before his 3rd birthday. He is a freshman at Van-Far High School and played on a St. Louis Challenger team in Pike County.
A Horseshoe Tournament and Volleyball Tournament was also held during the event.
