  • “He’s a really good kid, very loving,” the boy’s uncle said. “Full of smiles. Just a fun, fun kid – so we’re all praying for him.”

    Oliversion played for the Snow Canyon team of Santa Clara, Utah. It was a teammate who looked for help after hearing Oliverson’s fall.

    “Had that other player not been wakened by him falling, he may not have made it,” the uncle added.

    The team issued a statement following the tragic accident, wishing Oliverson a full recovery and announcing plans to play its Friday’s Little League World Series game.

    “While our hearts are heavy, we are committed as a team to have an opportunity to take part in something that is only dreamt about by others.”
