Hundreds Of Little Leaguers Wear Uniforms To Honor Fallen Teammate (Video)


Last Saturday, 10-year-old Lane Rodgers died tragically while trying to flee a little league tournament during a massive storm.

Rodgers, like hundreds of other youngsters, was attempting to evacuate the field in Tupelo, Mississippi when a tree limb broke off and killed him.

This past Tuesday, hundreds of little leaguers in uniform lined the streets of Byhalia, Mississippi to say "goodbye" to Rodgers.

They came from Mississippi, Tennessee and everywhere in between.
