We thought it was real tragic everybody was talking about it and felt bad for him really wanted to know which one it was and how he was doing but we don't have any updates

Their team maybe a litte down from that and from all the parents.  We act like its a family with the baseball team so when you hear about that its devastating.

The team has created a Facebook page to raise funds for Travis Gaines.
They've raised close to four thousand dollar in three days.
