Baseball game played in honor of Brayden Turner
By Gary Lloyd
A fall baseball tournament was held Sunday at the Trussville Sports Complex in honor of Brayden Turner, who died last month in an ATV accident in Carrington.
More than 50 kids and a large number of parents gathered to remember Turner. There were four teams in the tournament, which featured four games.
Between the last two games, several boys, girls and parents gathered in center field — the position Turner played — to sign white balloons, which were released in his memory.
“Fly High, #18” and “We’ll see you again” were some of the messages written on the balloons.
Turner’s younger brother, Jonah, who is now 5, went to the plate to bat a couple times, and in the spirit of good sportsmanship, “hit” two inside-the-park home runs.
