 “Leagues like Summer in the City and the Heart of the City tournament we held earlier this year are key to developing meaningful programs for inner-city kids,” said Bob Axworthy, Inner-City Junior Wesmen coach and tournament organizer. “We invite everyone to come out, have some fun and support a worthwhile program.”
