Three and a half years ago a physical education teacher, Christopher Astacio wanted to help some of the teen girls from M.S. 22 experience some good in their lives so he decided to start a softball team. The team, which serves as a family to these girls, has grown over the years while Coach Astacio battled stomach cancer.

The Lady Tigers are now raising money to make another trip to Chicago's Bandit Stadium. Coach and team members Yashira Centeno, Bryana Francisco, Ashley Morel and Jano Banks talked about the team and their fundraising goal.
