Sand Sharks pitcher Jason Boulais is bringing new meaning to the save in baseball. Rather than attempting to successfully close a game, he’s foregoing the remainder of his senior season at the University of South Carolina Beaufort to earn the ultimate save — a human life.
BIGGER THAN BASEBALL
After singing up as a bone marrow donor last year, Boulais recently got a call informing him of a match with a French boy. The six-foot-one fireballer didn’t hesitate in agreeing to an April surgery that will likely mean an end to his baseball career.
Boulais isn’t looking for accolades, but one has to imagine he’s a shoe in to win the Sun Conference Champion of Character award this year.
