Rhinelander High School junior Matt Rudolph, who pitches and plays third base for the varsity baseball team encountered a traumatic eye injury while fishing Mother's Day weekend. But despite the problems that have risen and him unable to play baseball at this time; 8-year old Phoenix Weber from Ashland, reached out to lift Rudolph's spirit during this difficult time. After the accident, Rudolph stated he would never fish again and his older sister knew she had to be there to help him through this difficult time. Melissa Burkardt, Matt's older sister made bait arrangement as well as creating a Facebook post seeking outdoor adventurists like her brother to send inspiring messages or any gear or gifts to help her brother during this hardship.The post reached several local community members and one of the most inspiring responses, came from Phoenix, whose grandmother Brenda Weber informed him of the situation. The 8-year old, who also loves fishing wanted to reach out and just bring Matt happiness.With the help of Phoenix's grandma, or "B" as he calls her, they reached out with a heartwarming letter to Matt. The full letter can be found in a link below or through Ashland Daily Press online.Phoenix not only wanted to write and to reach out, but he wanted to collect more baits on top of the two special baits he paid for himself that he wanted to give Matt. In his letter he says, "Here are my all time favorite and lucky baits I paid for myself and want to give them to you. Rather than having it in my tackle box, I'm giving it to you. I'm sure going to miss those baits."Several businesses in Ashland have decided to participate and be collection spots for baits that were inspired by Phoenix. Donation and collection buckets have been placed at Lakeside Products, Moores, Army Navy Store, NAPA, River Rock Bait Ship, Stagecoach Bar and Grill and Von Holzens. They will be collected on June 2.Brenda Weber and Matt's mother Marlene Rudolph are planning on arranging to have the two meet after he has time to recover after a series of three surgeries he will undergo.The Rudolph family also reached out to thank their Hodag Baseball Family as well as the Rhinelander community as well the Ashland for their continued support and prayers. On Tuesday at the RHS baseball game, there was a 50/50 raffle to help support Matt and his family.  "No words can express the appreciation our family has for each and everyone of you," said Marlene Rudolph. http://www.apg-wi.com/ashland_daily_press/news/local-boy-seeks-to-help-accident-victim-by-collecting-fishing/article_6ef45af0-23af-11e6-982d-13d559721a09.html
