Sunday, July 29th, 2018 was the final game for the American Legion B teams, state tournament. Evanston had made it all the way through the bracket with a lot of hard won victories. Everyone was excited for another great day of baseball.
During the game, a midfield collision happened. Hank was knocked unconscious, unresponsive and was not breathing. He was assisted on the field, rushed to the hospital and life flighted to Salt Lake City, UT.
He has a fractured sinus near his ear, burst eardrum and a fractured skull. He does not remember what happened. The neurosurgeon said the blood and air from the fractured sinus is migrating away from his brain and that is a very good thing.
He has been working with a speech therapist today, the doctors are monitoring his injuries closely and we are all hopeful and praying for the best results.
We are working to raise funds to assist the family during this time, to assist with hotel, travel, meals, child care, PT and all the massive expenses that occur with an injury like this.
