Zach Talley loses his battle with rare disease

South Bend, Ind. A young Elkhart boy who battled a rare neurodegenerative disease since he was born, passed away Saturday night.

Zach was born with a condition that slowly affected all the muscles in his body.

It was just earlier in August that the South Bend Silver Hawks and Memorial Children's Hospital teamed up for an event called Home Run for Life, to honor Zach Talley .

The fifteen year old loved baseball, and hadn't been on the baseball field since the previous summer.
