Northeastern’s Roman steps up for Sandy Hook

FORT MYERS, Fla. — R.J. Roman is a sophomoe infielder for Northeastern. He had several of the Red Sox autographing a ball before the game today.

But it’s not a souvenir. Roman is from Newtown, Conn., and attended Sandy Hook Elementary School. He’s going to auction the ball for charity and is among those organizing a celebrity softball game for the town.

According to Globe photographer Matt Lee, the Sox players were all signing the ball.

Good thinking by R.J. and good luck to him.
