Team honors grandfather killed in wreck

SALISBURY — Wayne Weaver was on his way to his grandson’s Little League game Tuesday when he was killed in a car accident.
The Cleveland man’s wife, Alice, is still recovering from injuries at Carolinas Medical Center.
Today, the Mariners — the team Wayne and Alice Weaver’s grandson, Jack, plays for — will play in memory of Wayne Weaver, who never missed a single one of Jack’s games.
The team will wear wristbands adorned with a “W” for Wayne Weaver, and parents of the players will also be given remembrance ribbons to wear.
“It’s just to let the family know that the team is here for Jack and for the family, and that we miss him and are thinking of all of them,” said Amber Herrmann, who helps coach the Mariners.
The game against the Phillies starts at 12:30 at the Salisbury Community Park, 935 Hurley School Road, field two.
If it rainstoday, the memorial for Wayne will be at the Mariners’ game at 5:45 p.m. Thursday.
