Default 13-Year-Old Dies After Being Hit By Pitch

This is terrible!

A 13-year-old Arizona boy was killed after a baseball hit him in the chest as he tried to bunt the ball. Jamey Jones, a player agent for Winslow Little League in northern Arizona, says 13-year-old Hayden Walton went for the bunt at a game Tuesday night. He said when the pitch hit Hayden's chest over his heart, the boy took two steps toward first base and then collapsed. He died the next morning.

"He dropped the bat and headed off to first base. Probably took two steps and he fell," Jones told

Members of the community set up a memorial near the field, and the league will resume its games Friday, the website reported.

Walton’s picture and the memorial will remian at the field.
