Softball tournament honors slain Yonkers MLB prospect

Posted: Updated:
YONKERS -

The second annual Michael Nolan Softball Tournament was held at Cook Field in Yonkers Saturday. 

The 23-year-old Nolan, a Major League Baseball prospect, was gunned down almost two years ago in a drive-by shooting outside the Burger King on Central Avenue.

Nolan's brother, Jimmy, says it still doesn't feel real. 

"There are times I go to call him or yell his name out or think about something he said to me and it hurts," he says. "That pain will never go away."

This year, the family gave out eight scholarships for high school students heading to college. The event also served as a push to get illegal guns off the streets of Yonkers.

Four men are serving jail time for the murder of Michael Nolan.
