HOOKSETT - Derryfield Baseball meant everything to Blake Marston during his four years on the team. After moving on to play college baseball, Marston became a Navy Seal. He died in January during a parachute training accident in Florida, his family says he died doing what he loves.
Though none of the current Derryfield players knew Marston, they all know his story and what he meant to the program. The team dedicated this season to Marston, wearing his number 8 on the back of their hats.
Thursday, during their final home game of the season, the team raised money for Veterans Count, a NH-based organization helping veterans and their families.
Cy Young award winner Chris Carpenter - formerly of the St. Louis Cardinals - is a N.H. native and a Derryfield alum.
He was on hand to sign autographs during the game to help raise money, too.
Marston's father, 84-year old William Marston threw out the first pitch. Both William and his wife Nancy were in the stands as dozens wore T-shirts with their son's name and number on the back.
Nancy Marston says she's grateful for the support of the team and the entire Derryfield community.
