All eyes were on the players but the spectators’ hearts were with a little girl who loved baseball. On Monday afternoon, about 7,400 people attended a special spring training game at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium in support of the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Fund. Green was the 9-year-old killed during the Jan. 8 shootings that took the lives of six people and injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, among others. It was one of several events being held this week in support of the shooting victims and their families.
