At only four years old, Sylus Conlea is set to undergo a third heart surgery, and on Wednesday, kids with Texas Mulisha in Portland made him an honorary teammate.
The young baseball players gave Sylus a signed jersey, glove and baseball bat, all in an effort to help give emotional support before his big surgery on Feb. 13.
There will also be a benefit at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the House of Rock. Money raised at the event will help Sylus with medical expenses. Tickets are $50.
