Former Hebron Christian Academy pitcher Mason Felt and his father, Rich, were driving home for the holidays Saturday when a single-vehicle accident in Texas claimed the elder Felt's life.
#Heath Kennedy, HCA's baseball coach until resigning earlier this year, said late Saturday that Rich Felt had flown out to Arizona to ride back to Hoschton with his son, a fifth-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Reds who was out west to rehab his shoulder. At about 10:30 a.m. Central time, their truck crashed near Ozona, Texas.
#Rich Felt -- a former South Gwinnett star who pitched in the Los Angeles Dodgers system for five years during the '80s -- was killed.
#Mason Felt was taken to Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo, Texas. He was considered to be in stable condition on Saturday night, Kennedy said.
I have seen other places
that he was listed in critical condition, though the above report does say he was in stable condition, so hopefully that is true.
