Each child receives a free Slugger Pack, which contains a baseball, a baseball case, an ink pad, a mini Louisville Slugger bat and a Lil’ Silver Slugger Award “which is given to the toughest and bravest Lil Sluggers after their surgeries,” according to the Russells’ website.Balloons with the names of Lil’ Heart Slugger children who have passed away were released during Jaxon’s birthday party Saturday.
