You do not have to tell the Gibraltar Secondary School’s baseball team about the emotional weight they will be carrying this season. Bo Johnson, an avid baseball player, would have most likely been a senior on this year’s team if it was not for the leukemia that took his life in 2012. With the acronym for You Only Live Once emblazoned on its outfield walls and the team caps colored in GO BO Foundation orange, head baseball coach Jay Kita knows this will be a special season regardless of the wins they collect.
Kita says the baseball team will host special events throughout the season to support the GO BO Foundation, which has raised thousands of dollars for cancer-related causes.
