YONKERS, N.Y. -- Family members of slain baseball prospect Michael Nolan are working to create a scholarship fund to help other young athletes at Nolan's alma mater, Saunders High School in Yonkers, according to a News 12 report.
They held a fundraiser Sunday at Rory Dolan's bar in Yonkers to help raise money for the Michael Nolan Scholarship Fund. Sports items and memorabilia from New York's sports teams were sold to help support the cause, News 12 says.
Nolan, 23, who'd just been drafted by the Oakland A's, was shot in September in a parking lot near Cross County Mall in a drive-by shooting. He died in October, and his killer has not been found, according to News 12.
