The Visalia Rawhide baseball team is going to bat Friday night for a four-year-old battling a rare, incurable disease.

A few special people have already signed up to have their heads shaved at Friday night's game at Rawhide Stadium, including his mother and grandmother - whose hip-lengthed hair has been growing for eight years.

It's also a fundraiser for pediatric cancer research. Oliver Ajluni was diagnosed with langerhan cell histiocytosis. Remarkably, he's in remission and now his family wants to help other families dealing with cancer.

The goal is to raise $5,000 for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. For $10, anyone can shave their heads on the field. Also, if you take a printed flyer, or show the flyer on your smartphone, $2 will be donated to cancer research for each ticket purchased.

The event starts at 7pm.

You can follow Olly's journey on Facebook by going to "Pray for Little Olly." You can also find a flyer on the page.
