STOCKTON --

Every season, with each new team stepping up to bat, kids in Stockton will look up at the scoreboard, a simple sign that helps Paul Singh look up, too.

"Generations down the road, they're gonna say ‘who is Misty Holt-Singh?’ And then at that point they'll find out who she was and the type of person she was,” said Singh. “Doing things like this helps me heal."

The scoreboard sits above the Oak Park Northern Little League Field. Not far from the Misty Holt-Singh Memorial bench, both honoring the 41-year-old's life, but regrettably summoning the story of her death in July 2014.

The mother, and wife, was held hostage in Stockton's Bank of the West robbery and killed by police gunfire in the resulting shootout.

"I was looking for some things to do in her memory and I wanted to be something she liked so she loves baseball she loves kids,” said Paul.

"Paul reached out to us and he asked if there was a way United Way could help put this together, and (we said heck yeah, we want to be a part of it."

Holt-Singh was remembered by family and friends as a kind spirit who was loved by everyone and loved in return. That's what her family hopes people, especially the kids who'll play on this field, will remember.

"This is also something she would want she was such a caring, giving person, and my goal is to do projects like this and give back,” said Singh.
