Sayles, who most knew as "Shaq," was an Oakland native and 2012 Antioch High School graduate.

While grieving over the loss, Sayles' mother Stella Owens, with the help of the Antioch High baseball community, is trying to raise the $4,000 for transportation costs to bring him home for burial.

The account is set up at Wells Fargo Bank, account No. 8660574453, and is for Stella Owens/Shaquille Sayles. Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo branch.
