Arizona high school baseball team shows up in orange to support ailing opposing player

Sports isn’t just about building rivalries, winning and trying to collect trophies.
On Thursday, at Scottsdale Horizon’s Husky Park, it was about the “brotherhood of baseball,” as coach Eric Kibler put it.
Phoenix Sandra Day O’Connor showed up in orange shirts, a show of solidarity for Horizon junior pitcher Collin Demas, who hasn’t been able to play this season as he receives treatments to battle leukemia.
The coaching staff and team purchased orange shirts in honor of Demas. Horizon took  a group picture of the two teams together with Demas after O’Connor’s 4-2 victory
