Baseball program pays tribute and remembers Lazar.
Families across Long Island and the country have paid tribute to 10-year-old Lazar LaPenna, who died last Friday while playing in a Little League baseball game, by leaving bats, helmets and hats outside their front doors.
The hashtag #BatsOutForLazar, is just one of many memorials for the fourth-grader from East Elementary School in Long Beach, who died last week, two days after his 10th birthday. He suffered an epileptic seizure after hitting a ball and running to first base, his father, Gregg LaPenna.
