Kyle Krawchyk is a boy with many talents. While he's a strong NF warrior, Kyle also enjoys calculators, Minecraft, and of course, baseball. The Krawchyk family has been heavily involved in the Mahoning Valley for years, including creating and hosting our annual #NFStrong evennt in Boardman, OH and time spent with the Akron's Children's Hospital for some of Kyle's NF care. It was an incredible surprise when Jenn Krawchyk, Kyle's mom, was connected with Matt and the Mahoning Valley Scrappers and Kyle was invited to throw out the first pitch. 

"We are so excited to do this and Kyle is SO excited," Jenn expressed in a note on Facebook. "Thank you to my wonderful friend, Kelly Robertson, for making this possible for our family... This will be something Kyle will never forget!" 

Cheers were heard all around the stadium as the attendees listened to Kyle's story and Kyle threw an amazing first ball. Way to go Kyle!
