HAYDEN, Ala. (WBRC) - Hundreds of youth baseball players came together Saturday to help the Fultondale community.
On Saturday, Grand Slam North Alabama held it’s Fultondale Tornado Relief Fundraiser tournament in Hayden and Alabaster to help raise money for Fultondale tornado victims in need. 25 youth baseball teams from across the state played in the tournament.
