The Cory Joseph Wilson Fireball 40 Memorial Tournament continues Saturday, August 2nd at L. Scott Stell Park in Savannah starting at 9:00 a.m.

Savannah native and Georgia Southern student Cory Joseph Wilson passed away at age 21 after he encountered a heart arrhythmia on January 17th, 2013.

Family and friends have come together to honor Cory's memory through the baseball tournament raising money for Automated External Defibrillators in facilities that need the device.

Cory's life could have been saved by an AED but there was not one available to rescue him.

Last year the event raised 20,000 dollars providing AED's in Chatham County such as L. Scott Stell Park, Memorial Stadium, Jennifer Ross Soccer Complex, Charles C. Brooks Sports Complex, and Ambuc Park.

The championship game will be held at 8:00 p.m. and there will be a lunch break from 12:30p.m. until 2p.m.
