Nice weather, great competition and a record-setting fundraising effort highlighted the 14th annual Travis Roy Foundation wiffle ball tournament, organizers said Monday.

For the second time in three years, the funds raised at the three-day backyard tourney went past the half-million dollar mark for the foundation that is named after the former Boston University hockey player who suffered a severe spinal cord injury 20 years ago this October.

As of Sunday evening, $546,023 had been raised, breaking the 2013 record of $505,000. The last three years, the tourney has brought in over $1.5 million to bring the 14-year total to over $3.5 million.
