Lazar LaPenna's brothers are hoping to honor the Little Leaguer's legacy with T-shirts.
It's the latest tribute for LaPenna, who died during a Little League game.
Blaise and Gerry LaPenna came up with the idea, and both play for the Long Beach Youth Lacrosse Program.
They asked Lacrosse Unlimited to help out.
"They reached out to us with the idea of honoring the brother with a shirt," says Sean Haggerty, who is part of the sales team with Lacrosse Unlimited. "We wanted to get involved, we had our art team get involved."
The shirt has the words "Long Beach" on the front.
Lazar LaPenna's name and the number nine is on the back.
The shirts will be available online and at games in Long Beach.
